Mintz advised SiOnyx™, a silicon-based photonics company, in its recently completed sale to DC Capital Partners, a private equity investment firm.
Based in Beverly, Mass., SiOnyx develops and manufactures proprietary ultra-low-light complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors and high-performance night vision camera systems. These sensors dramatically enhance the performance of light sensing devices commonly used in commercial, industrial, medical, and defense related applications. Notably, SiOnyx works with the U.S. Department of Defense and was recently awarded a $20 million contract by the U.S. Army for the delivery of digital night vision cameras for its Integrated Visual Augmentation System program. The company’s Aurora night vision camera is developed for consumer use and sought after by outdoorsmen, law enforcement, search and rescue, executive protection, and mariners around the world.
