ZeroWatt Business Strategy


Standalone analog semiconductor market is large and growing, but
presents significant challenges for a new entrant



“Integrated” applications provide the perfect platform for ACE technology

o
ACE can be a valuable building block along side microcontrollers and DSPs

o
By forming technology & financial partnerships with industry leaders, ZeroWatt can
participate in large, growing markets



ZeroWatt will continue to invest in technology development and drive a
compelling roadmap to stay ahead of the industry curve

o
The company will not invest in the infrastructure required to manufacture, sell
and support standalone products



The company is seeking a $1M in seed investment to

o
Add full time engineering resources to execute joint development programs

o
Establish development infrastructure to drive innovations

analog and digital domains


Five valuable patents filed



On
-
going partnership discussions with several industry leaders


Meetings held with nearly a dozen MCU suppliers, FPGA vendors and high
volume users


High level of interest from several larger players



Capital efficient business model suitable for s
trategic partners,
technology angels and selected VCs


Relatively small investment needed to build value


Simple ownership structure


Potential for a quicker exit compared with a traditional semi play
