Docea Power SAS secured $1.5M in venture capital money after the successful launch of its Aceplorer product in 2009. The funds, raised from Rh?ne-Alpes Cration, Alps Development Sustainable Investment, Siparex, Octalfa and private investors, will be used to expand the company's product offering and to increase its commercial deployment abroad, notably in Asia and the United States.

"Docea brings a comprehensive and unique solution to energy consumption and heat dissipation in chips and electronic systems, a problem that is highly critical in the mobile application industry," says Guy Rigaud, director of Rhone-Alpes Creation "Benefiting from fast-growing trends in the green technologies and system level design (ESL) fields, the Docea's positioning is highly promising."

"This investment represents a high sign of confidence and an important milestone in the history of

Docea Power," said Ghislain Kaiser, CEO of Docea. "The support of well-recognized high-tech
