Flusso – growing a start-up during a pandemic and a chip shortage

I will be giving an introduction about Flusso (www.flussoltd.com), covering how the company came to life and commenting on both technical and commercial challenges of growing a start-up during a pandemic and a semiconductor shortage. I will be describing the technology platform behind the FLS110 flow sensor as well as touching on system integration challenges pandemic and a semiconductor shortage. I will be describing the technology platform behind the FLS110 flow sensor as well as touching on system integration challenges and the benefit offered by our flow sensing solutions in a couple of relevant use cases. I will also be offering a brief overview of our current R&D activities.

  • Company Profile

Flusso

Flusso (www.flussoltd.com) is a fabless semiconductor company developing flow and gas sensing solutions for use in low-cost, high-volume applications.

Flusso’s new FLS110 flow sensor, with a footprint of just 3.5 x 3.5 mm, is small enough to fit into virtually any product and can be positioned where measurements matter the most. The FLS110 is part of a complete digital flow sensing solution seamlessly integrating hardware and software with mechanical and fluidic components. Our modular approach allows our customers to strike the ideal balance between system cost and performance.

Originally spun out from Cambridge university, Flusso is Cambridge based with representatives in Hong Kong and US. Formed by a team of ~30 people, recently ISO9001 certified, and equity funded for about £5.5m, Flusso is now in a pre-sales phase. And while bringing the FLS110 to market, Flusso is also developing other flow and gas sensing technologies.
