Phononic Raises $21M Series C Funding Led by Tsing Capital

RALEIGH, N.C., December 12, 2013-- Phononic, a leader in commercializing solid-state cooling and refrigeration technology, today announced the close of a $21 million Series C financing led by Beijing-based Tsing Capital with National Bank Financial and existing investors Venrock and Oak Investment Partners. The funds will be used to expand the engineering team, transition from pilot to volume manufacturing and establish a presence in Asia.

“Compressors are heavy, noisy, take up valuable space and require toxic coolants, yet they represent a multi-billion dollar refrigeration and window-mounted air conditioning market opportunity. This financing supports Phononic’s goal of becoming the leading global provider of compressor-free, solid-state refrigeration and cooling solutions.”

Phononic’s disruptive approach to cooling and refrigeration integrates high-performance, solid-state heat pumps into a manufacturing-friendly systems platform that realizes refrigeration consumer products that are quiet, energy efficient, toxin-free and require no moving parts.

Dr. Anthony Atti, Phononic CEO and co-founder, said: “Compressors are heavy, noisy, take up valuable space and require toxic coolants, yet they represent a multi-billion dollar refrigeration and window-mounted air conditioning market opportunity. This financing supports Phononic’s goal of becoming the leading global provider of compressor-free, solid-state refrigeration and cooling solutions.”

Ian Zhu, partner at Tsing Capital and new Phononic board member, said: “Phononic is doing something truly disruptive. We believe Asia, particularly China, presents a huge opportunity for Phononic to improve the energy efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of refrigerators and window-mounted air conditioners, and Tsing is ready to help Phononic enter this market.”
