Predictions 2014: Angel Orrantia, of VC SKTA Innopartners, on the revitalized semiconductor ecosystem.

SKTA Innopartners director Angel Orrantia spoke with the San Jose Mercury’s Peter Delevett on why Silicon Valley’s VC community has to start investing again in hardware.

Sure, as Orrantia infers, hardware is tougher (and will probably take longer) to get an exit out of.   But hardware is how electronics ultimately works with its human users.   So funding the hardware ecosystem in, say semiconductors, is absolutely crucial to Silicon Valley’s continued role as the mecca for high tech innovation.

That’s why Orrantia says it’s time to put the silicon back in Silicon Valley.

Awaiting word from Innopartners director Orrantia on winner of Open Compute Project hackathon

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

We’re waiting to hear from SKTA Innopartners LLC director Angel Orrantia on the results of the Open Compute Project hackathon that took place yesterday at the Facebook campus.   Orrantia is one of the judges. We hear that the winner will be announced at the GigaOM Structure conference this afternoon sometime.

What happened at the hackathon?

There were a number of  teams comprised of over 50 hackers from Silicon Valley, Singapore, Miami, Boston, Seattle, Virginia and Texas.

Projects included:

• building an ARM based system on a chip

• bringing robotics into the datacenter to automate repairs

• building a fast interconnect between ARM boards

• gathering server diagnostics data into a web interface for remote diagnostics over the web

• two projects on car automation

1- collecting diagnostic data about the car – like speed, fuel consumption, acceleration, etc. – to give people the ability to monitor their driving habits to prevent or avoid accidents

2- designing a headset that measures brainwaves to alert the driver or a third party company that can get in touch with the driver

Also, the winners from the last hackathon returned to continue working and expanding on their debug port aggregation hack.
