Nujira Raises $12M in Funding

Nujira, a Cambridge, UK-based fabless semiconductor company, has raised $12m in funding from Zurich-based SAM Private Equity.

Led by CEO Tim Haynes, Nujira is the world leader in Envelope Tracking (ET) technology. Its Coolteq® power modulator solutions enable the delivery of power efficient 3G/4G wireless transmitters for Cellular Terminals, Cellular Infrastructure and Digital Broadcast systems.

The company intends to use the capital to continue to develop its technology, and to reinforce the value of its ET patent portfolio.

Nujira, which has design centres in Cambridge and Edinburgh, is currently engaged with 16 major smartphone chipset suppliers to embed its ET technology into their reference platforms and expects its Coolteq.L technology to be designed into 4G smartphones in 2013.

The company has been previously backed by NES Partners, Environmental Technologies Fund, Amadeus Capital Partners, and Climate Change Capital Private Equity.
