Aspinity was formed in 2015 when Tom Doyle, a semiconductor industry veteran and West Virginia University (WVU) alum, teamed up with Dr. David Graham and fellow WVU researchers Dr. Vinod Kulathumani and Dr. Brandon Rumberg to commercialize their revolutionary analog early-event detection integrated circuit technology based on their expertise in neuromorphic and computational electronics. Aspinity holds the exclusive license to the technology and continues to independently develop additional technologies that support the company’s mission to enable a new generation of battery-operated always-on sensing applications such as voice/sound wake-up. Industrial machine health monitoring, wearable health monitoring, and more.
