Inomize aiding the visually impaired to see

Inomize, a leading provider of turnkey ASIC design solutions, announced today it has been selected to support Nano-Retina in the design of their new bionic retina ASICs.

Inomize was selected by a Nano-Retina to lead the development of their Bio-Retina, a bionic retina designed for revolutionary sight restoration to those suffering from retinal degenerative diseases like AMD. Inomize was responsible for the analog design, verification, and back-end work. The Nano Retina solution is built from 2 ASIC components: The first one used as a CMOS Image Sensor and generate the module voltages from a photo voltaic cell and the second one as responsible for signal possessing and signal amplifying and transmitting to the retina. All parts are working at sub threshold technology.

Bio-Retina incorporates various nano-size components in one tiny implant, approximating the size of a child’s fingernail bed. Its simple implant procedure requires local anaesthesia, a small incision and positioning of the device to the degenerated retina. Recovery time is estimated at up to one week and sight can be restored and provide functional vision after training.

Udi Shaked, Inomize CEO said that this was a challenging project, that perfectly suits the Inomize broad portfolio of ASIC capabilities like analog, system design and verification. Yaakov Milstain, NanoRetina’s CEO: “ We selected Inomize after being convinced that they are the most suitable partner for such an interdisciplinary ASIC work
