Power amplifier startup Falcomm to close $4M, taking on Qualcomm and Broadcom
Falcomm, a semiconductor startup based out of Atlanta, Georgia, is working on a new type of power amplifier to cut energy consumption in hardware ranging from Wi-Fi networks and satellites to consumer products like smartphones and IoTs. The power amplifier, in the words of Edgar Garay, co-founder and CEO of Falcomm, is “the device that goes before the antenna in a radio” and is “responsible for conditioning and blasting the signal through the antenna.”
Investors have shown confidence in Falcomm’s technology to supercharge power amplifiers. The startup, which is one of the Disrupt Startup Battlefield 200 companies in 2023, is announcing today that it has signed a term sheet with Squadra Ventures and is set to close a $4 million round on September 22, with more details to come. It’s the second round of equity funding since the company spun out of Georgia Institute of Technology, where Garay completed his PhD in electrical engineering.
