PATENTED INNOVATIONS FROM TELA


The team at Tela Innovations has extensive experience developing novel approaches to the design challenges at advanced technology nodes. Tela has developed technology that addresses the design constraints resulting from the lithography challenges of moving to 32nm and smaller geometries. An overview of the technology Tela has developed is provided in the table below.

The development of solutions to these design challenges by the engineers at Tela has resulted in an extensive portfolio of patents that are available for licensing to companies in the semiconductor and electronics industry. A listing of Tela’s U.S. patents is available from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website here.
