Photonic Integration Centre Launches In Netherlands

News

Collaboration between PhotonDelta, TNO, University of Twente and Eindhoven University of Technology hopes to accelerate digital innovation with the power of light

On 2 June 2021, the integrated photonics industry accelerator PhotonDelta, research institute TNO, Eindhoven University of Technology and University of Twente will sign a cooperation agreement for the new Photonic Integration Technology Center (PITC) in the Netherlands. The purpose of the centre is to speed up the commercialisation of integrated photonics for applications such as autonomous mobility, healthcare, data and communications.

"Integrated photonics is a key enabling technology with a wide spectrum of applications allowing to respond promptly and efficiently to societal challenges of today and tomorrow." says Carlos Lee, general director of European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC), "The Photonic Integration Technology Centre brings the integrated photonics to a level that it can be easily adopted by industry. This great ambition makes the PITC a perfect fit to the EPIC ecosystem."

Specific PITC tasks will be:
 developing technology in shared innovation programs
; ensuring a smooth path to manufacturing and commercialisation
; providing access to high-tech infrastructure and facilities; and supporting talent development for skilled professionals.

The PITC will be located on the premises of Eindhoven University of Technology and University of Twente in the Netherlands. Customers will get access to technology and know-how at an early stage while sharing the costs and risk of new technology development. The jointly developed innovations will be extensively tested for reliability and stability, facilitating the route to production.

PITC is enabled by Brainport Development, the Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate, regional growth accelerators BOM and OostNL and the provinces of Noord-Brabant, Overijssel and Gelderland.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
