Opening of the Chip Integration Technology Centre

5th March 2020

Heterogeneous integration and advanced packaging is essential for connecting chips and protecting them. The Chip Integration Technology Centre (CITC), located in Nijmegen, bridges the gap between science and industry in the field of materials, machines and semiconductors. In the  centre, new technology is being developed to make the packaging of the chip smaller, better and cheaper. Chip manufacturers, test and packaging companies, material suppliers, software developers, photonics firms and research institutions will work together on creating this innovative chip integration technology.

With the team in place, the design of offices & lab rooms and program lines running, the CITC was able to officially open on the 5th of March. 

PhotonDelta Application Bootcamp with Hendrix Genetics

14th February 2020

From 11th to 13th of February, the second PhotonDelta Application Bootcamp was held at TU/e. Experts in the field at TU/e tried to come up with solutions for Hendrix Genetics, with the use of integrated photonics. The challenge is set on measuring conventional egg properties. 

The company is enthusiastic about the Application Bootcamp. “Fascinating what the team was able to come up with in a few days. Photonics and spectroscopy look like promising technologies for measuring conventional egg properties such as shell thickness and egg quality automatically and at scale. It may even allow us to measure fertilization, embryo health and sex without opening the egg.” Bram Visser, Hendrix Genetics.

Visit Ambassador of Ireland

13th February 2020

Last Thursday the Ambassador of Ireland, Mr. Kevin Kelly, along with leaders from its two most important trade organizations, Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, visited the Brainport region. PhotonDelta presented its strategy and its integrated photonics supply chain. In addition to that, the Irish visitors experienced a tour around Philips Innovation Centre and presentations from EIT Digital, EIT Health and HighTechXL.
 
The meeting was a first introduction to each other’s strengths and interests. The aim of the visit was a to explore whether Ireland and the Netherlands, in particular the Brainport region, can connect in terms of innovation and trade. The discussion lead to enough mutual interest and eagerness to connect PhotonDelta, the Dutch integrated photonics cluster, to companies in Ireland, primarily those active in the medical and, growing, automotive segment,to further explore options for concrete co-operations.

After a successful PhotonDelta day, today we had a visit of DG Focco Vijselaar and Director Michiel Sweers (Ministry of Economic Affairs) to PhotonDelta in Nijmegen! A deep dive session in the key enabling technology of integrated photonics and the semiconductor industry. A fruitful and potential cooperation! Thank you CITC Netherlands, Novio Tech Campus, NXP Semiconductors, Nexperia and Business Cluster Semiconductors Netherlands.

Successful PhotonDelta Day!

4th December 2019

We look back at a successful event, with lively and good discussions on how to grow our integrated photonics industry!  Our speakers and more then 125 attendees brought different knowledge to our event; knowledge on design, manufacturing, packaging, equipment, commercialization, research and so on!  In short, we had a close look on the lessons learned in high tech and semicon industry and to what extend the integrated photonics industry can learn from the past. During the event, we defined a more common ground on how to grow the industry, and thereby the strategy of PhotonDelta. Many new connections were made, and we hope our community has grown after the PhotonDelta day.

Successful first PhotonDelta Application Labs Bootcamp at TU/e !

7th November 2019

Meet Ruud van Heur, Chairman of our Investmentcommittee

22nd of July 2019

Ruud van Heur is appointed by the Supervisory Board of PhotonDelta as the Chairman of our Investment committee and our Expertpanel. He is very motivated and excited to fulfil this job for PhotonDelta. But who is this business man and what are his intrinsic motives? In this interview we get to know him better by his career, his leitmotief and his view on the industry.

What is the most important lesson you learned as an entrepreneur in business about innovation?
"I learned that no individual, no industry can successfully achieve relevance on their own. You have to build bridges, to collaborate, to build together and invest in flexible networks. Sometimes not easy but necessary and rewarding."

Looking back at the European Photonics Venture Forum

28th of June 2019

Joachim de Sterke, CFO at PhotonDelta, was part of the expert jury of the European Photonics Venture Forum, which took place in the 26 – 27th of June in Munich. He was truly amazed by the magnitude and passion of all these (Integrated) Photonics start-ups. In parallel the same applied the funding parties. Joachim: "There is an evident growth in funding parties who are no longer “afraid” to invest in early stage Deep Tech / hardware, which not only important for these bright startups but for Europe in general. I believe, however at lot more is still needed to break down the Death Valley Curve, create more success stories and keep Europe in a competitive position."

Congrats to the six startups who were picked to move on towards the finals in November, in the end all attendees were winners!!

Building a billion dollar integrated photonics industry

6th of June 2019 

“In integrated photonics, there is not yet such a thing as a systems architect, someone who has a reasonable understanding of all the system components and who knows how to bring those together. Active and passive photonic components, electronics, packaging technology: it’s a mix of expertise that’s quite rare. We definitely need to address that issue.” Stated by René Penning de Vries today in an interview done by Bits&Chips.

The Netherlands is fully committed to integrated photonics

8th May 2019 | ecosystempartners

Today in the AD, an interview with our chairman René Penning de Vries on how integrated photonics will grow in The Netherlands by working together in an ecosystem.

"The carrot and stick strategy is followed for this. The carrot is that we support companies to conduct joint research. That support can exist in the form of money, research facilities or people. The stick is that the knowledge gained must be shared with the others and that it benefits the entire club. Everyone must therefore be able to benefit from it” he states. Follow the link to read the full article in the AD (in Dutch).
