AnSyn is named the most promising start-up firm in Europe
AnSyn AB, a spin-off from LiU research and one of the companies currently in the business incubator LEAD (LiU Entrepreneurship and Development), has been named Europe's most promising start-up enterprise in the microelectronics field.
AnSyn AB develops and markets software for automated dimensioning of integrated analogue electronics.
The prize was captured in a tough international rivalry at the SAME Forum (Sophia Antipolis MicroElectronics Association) held in Nice, France. The SAME Forum is an international venue for cutting-edge microelectronics firms. The jury included representatives from Texas Instruments, Cadence Design Systems, Esterel Technologies, Infineon Technologies and others.
AnSyn was the only Swedish candidate. The jury pointed out that AnSyn's technology targets a clearly defined problem that is vital to the entire microelectronics branch, and that the enterprise has a promising commercial future.
"We regard this award as a proof that analogue electronics manufacturers recognize the capability of our technology to solve anticipated engineering problems", says Emil Hjalmarson, technology director at AnSyn.
Christian Berger, at LEAD, is certainly pleased to learn of AnSyn's success and says, "This proves without doubt that our emerging companies are capable of gaining a foothold on the international scene."
