Sand 9 aims to disrupt $4B timing market in 2013, with better mobile devices a goal
After five years of work and $49 million in venture capital raised, Cambridge's Sand 9 expects to begin shipping commercial volumes of its micro-electromechanical (MEMS) devices — a substitute for ubiquitous quartz timing devices — in the second half of 2013, CEO Vince Graziani said in an interview.
Sand 9 is seeking to supplant quartz crystal from its near century-long dominance of the market for timing devices, which are found in every electronic device.
