Yokneam is fast becoming one of the major centers of core semiconductor technologies.
Despite all of the secrecy surrounding Amazon.com's recent purchase of Annapurna Labs for an estimated $350 million, one thing is nearly certain, Yokneam is fast becoming one of the major centers of core semiconductor technologies. After Marvell acquired Galileo Technologies in 2000 for $2.7 billion, the Yokneam site became Marvell's R&D site in Israel.
In addition to these acquisitions, Yokneam is home to a number of other companies in the semiconductor field.

PLSense technology extends the battery life by a factor of 3-5X in real applications. Usage of the PLSense technology will bring ultra-low power devices to mainstream IoT and other high-volume applications.
The majority of the emerging tens of billions of connected Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices are battery operated. Devices such as Wearable well-being devices, smart-home sensors and actuators, always-on sensors in mobile devices, hearing aids etc. will surround us anywhere, anytime.
Reducing the power consumption of the silicon powering these applications extends the battery life, reduces the frequency of battery replacement, enables richer feature-set of the devices and enables usage of smaller and lighter batteries.
The operating voltage of standard solutions is well above the Threshold Voltage (VT) of the silicon, enabling fast and robust operation between cut-off (“0”) and saturation (“1”). PLSense technology enables reducing the operating voltage to Near-Threshold or Sub-Threshold levels. This significantly reduces the power consumption and saves 70-80% of the dynamic power consumption and over 80% of the leakage power.
PLSense technology and products overcome the technological and commercial challenges associated with the Near/Sub Threshold domain.
