    Nantero

    "If everything works like we expect, our chips will be in every cell phone, laptop and camera in the world," Lindefjeld said.

    Lindefjeld won't provide any revenue or licensing figures for the company. In 2007, the company had about $15 million in sales, according to data from Thomson Reuters.

    The company now has about 108 U.S. patents and about 200 in other countries, most of which cover the design and manufacture of its various nanotube-based chips.
    For example, this year, Nantero received a patent for a microscopic nantotube switch that controls the path of electricity along electronic circuits. The switch will be a fundamental building block for all the nanotube-based chips Nantero designs, whether they're memory, logic or photovoltaic. "Think of it like a transistor in a radio, or the old tubes in televisions," Lindefjeld said. "What makes this switch so important is that it's really, really small, like the size of an atom."

    In fact, Nantero's patents are ranked second among semiconductor manufacturers on the IEEE's 2009 Patent Power Scorecard, ahead of Intel Corp. and Broadcom Corp. Samsung topped the chart.
