Qualtre Raises $10M for Silicon MEMS Gyroscope

Qualtre, a start-up based in Marlborough, Massachusetts, raised $10 million in venture funding for its tri-axial solid-state silicon BAW (bulk-acoustic wave) gyroscope.

Qualtre is pioneering a solid-state silicon MEMS motion sensor for consumer electronics. Engineering samples are now available. The company's product development efforts build upon years of research conducted by its founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dr. Farrokh Ayazi, at Georgia Tech's renowned Integrated MEMS Laboratory.

Investors include Matrix Partners and Pilot House Ventures.
