WiSpry Raises $10 Million for RF Silicon

WiSpry, a start-up based in Irvine, California, raised an additional $10 million in Series C funding for its programmable radio frequency (RF) semiconductor products for the wireless industry. WiSpry is developing highly-integrated, programmable RF products for multi-band, multi-standard handsets including tunable antennas and tunable impedance matching networks using industry standard CMOS processes. The company said its technology enables the wireless industry to provide users with smaller, more technically advanced, and more energy efficient wireless devices that reliably stay connected at the high data rates that future mobile wireless applications will require. WiSpry's tunable RF-MEMS devices enable the development of reconfigurable RF front-ends.

The latest funding round brings the total of the Series C round to $20 million. The round was led by new investment partners, Chart Venture Partners and Acadia Woods Partners, bringing the number of new investors in WiSpry to four with Paladin Capital and Murata participating in the first closing.
