Sand9 Inc MEMS startup closed?
Sand 9 Inc. Cambridge, Mass., a startup founded in 2007 to develop piezoelectric MEMS resonator timing circuits as an alternative to quartz crystal devices, appears to have closed its doors.
The company’s website is inactive and its previously given phone number is no longer in service. Other negative indicators are that a number of executives, including its last known CEO, state on their LinkedIn pages that their time with Sand 9 ended in May 2015.An alternative explanation is that the company has been bought as a going concern; but if that was the case it would be normal to announce the move and leave information to that effect on the website and to redirect visitors. Calls, emails and messages to a number of people that might be familiar with the situation at Sand 9 have not been returned as yet or have failed to produce any information on what has happened to company.Sand 9 was founded in 2007 as a spin out from Boston University by Professor Raj Mohanty, inventor of its MEMS technology, and Matt Crowley who served as vice president of business development.
