IEEE Spectrum Ranks CrossBar Among Top 20 Companies in Patent Innovations

Santa Clara, CA - August 3, 2017 - CrossBar Inc., the ReRAM technology leader, today announced that the company ranked at the top of the Patent Power 2016 Scorecard for the Semiconductor Manufacturing Industry. CrossBar ranked 20th, among peers such as HP, Xerox and Lenovo. The annual ranking was published in the IEEE Spectrum, a publication of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers that reaches more than 400,000 professionals in areas of technology, engineering and science.

“Only a handful of privately held companies made the list, and we are proud that CrossBar ranked among the top companies in the world,” said CrossBar CEO George Minassian. “Making the IEEE’s Patent Power Scorecard list is a strong validation of CrossBar’s ReRAM technology and our patent portfolio. CrossBar is helping companies rethink storage innovation with its unique ReRAM memory technology that is playing an important role in storage and the next era of the user experience across artificial intelligence, machine learning and neural networks, IoT, wearables, distributed data centers and device-less mobile computing.”

The Patent Power scorecards are based on objective, quantitative benchmarking of the patent portfolios of more than 6,500 leading commercial enterprises, academic institutions, nonprofit organizations and government agencies worldwide. This benchmarking—carried out by 1790 Analytics, based in Haddonfield, N.J.—takes into account not only the size of organizations' patent portfolios but also their quality, as reflected in characteristics such as growth, impact, originality, and general applicability.
