Primary Industry:Software & Services
Executive Summary:NanoCAD is a software tool that uses novel algorithms and hardware acceleration to allow accurate simulations of the physical properties of structures and devices in the 1-100nm size range, and allows engineers to interactively visualize and design these devices. This will greatly reduce the time and cost of nanotech design, development, and fabrication and accelerate nanotech development. Our market is currently the segment of government, academia and industry that spends $8 billion dollars a year on nanotech research and development, much of on an expensive and tedious trial and error design process due to the lack of effective simulation and modeling tools. Of particular interest are semiconductor manufacturers such as Intel, AMD, and National Semiconductor that are working with transistors and other electronic devices at the nanoscale. We will sell this product through Accelrys, as an add-on for their Materials Studio product line, leveraging their sales channels to reach our customers.

“A major challenge for both the technology and the financial communities is finding a forum in which all parties can interact and explore possibilities for future innovation. TechConnect was created to fill this void, bringing both sides together under one roof into a setting that ultimately will help significant ground-breaking concepts come to life.”
Matthew Laudon, Co-Founder and Director of TechConnect
