Silicon Catalyst has a created network that lowers the capital expenses associated with the design and fabrication of silicon-based IC’s, sensors, and MEMS devices by providing advanced design tools and services from a comprehensive network of In-Kind Partners (IKPs).

Its Portfolio Companies utilize IKP tools and services including design tools, simulation software, design services, foundry PDK access and MPW runs, test program development, tester access, and banking and legal services.

“We have entered a period of semiconductor industry hyper-scale, having just experienced annual industry growth of 30%,” says SeanbRedmind of Silicon Catalyst, “never has so much demand been created by so few new innovations. Scotland has a rich tradition of successful global semiconductor success.

David Richardson, Chief Entrepreneurial Executive, Heriot-Watt University said “GRID offers bespoke support to ambitious scale-ups developing innovative solutions to global challenges.”
