hocking Technologies, Inc., has closed an $8M B-1 round led by Vista Ventures. The B-1 round

included participation from existing institutional

shareholders Arch Ventures, ATA ventures, Balch Hill Capital and Vista Ventures as well as SkyLake Incuvest & Co. of Korea.

“We are very fortunate to have the support of our existing investors as Shocking brings its product to market. The addition of SkyLake to our team will be instrumental in accelerating the strong interest we have seen in the Korean market. We are honored to be able to work with Dr. Daeje Chin and his team; their experience and guidance on how to quickly gain acceptance in Korea will surely accelerate our plans,” said Lex Kosowsky, President and CEO of Shocking.

Shocking Technologies, Inc. is a privately held, venture-backed company developing “Voltage Swit-

chable Dielectric™ (VSD™) materials and provi-

ding a total ESD solution. Shocking Technologies, Inc. started operations in 2006 as a privately held, venture-backed company. A VSD™ material is a po- lymer nano-composite that behaves like an insulator (dielectric) during normal circuit operation and beco- mes conductive when the voltage across the VSD™ material increases beyond a predefined threshold voltage. The voltage switches back to an insulator again after the voltage drops below the threshold. This unique property, coupled with the ability to tailor the response of the material, opens up several new areas in electronics. The first application being introduced enables embedded electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection in printed circuit boards (PCBs) and semiconductor packages.
