SkyDeck to process semiconductor startups

UC Berkeley SkyDeck, the accelerator of University of California (UC) Berkeley, yesterday announced a new program that will focus on semiconductor technology startups.

Dubbed Chip Track, the 12-month program will be aimed at companies developing chips for applications such as machine learning, computer vision, low-power embedded internet-of-things devices and high-performance data centres.

Each participant will receive $100,000 in funding from the Berkeley SkyDeck Fund and will be able to access the expertise of scientific and industry advisers.
