InfiniLED gains access to Tyndall National Institute cleanrooms
Semiconductor cleanroom facilities at Tyndall National Insitute
InfiniLED, a LED light source modules developer has signed an access agreement with Tyndall National Institute, Cork, that will allow InfiniLED’s engineers to work within the institute’s Compound Semiconductor cleanrooms to fabricate its μLED (MicroLED) technology.
“The availability of wafer growth, chip fabrication and advanced photonic packaging & test facilities at the Tyndall National Institute allows InfiniLED to develop devices from raw materials to full systems without incurring the cost of acquiring such equipment and facilities itself. It means that InfiniLED can provide a range of solutions to customers based on μLED technology in a form that is most suited to their requirements,” said Joe O’Keeffe, ceo of InfiniLED.
InfiniLED is a Tyndall National Institute and University College Cork spin-out launched in April 2011. Tyndall will continue to work with Infiniled’s technology and team to incorporate the μLED into future Tyndall client companies system solutions while InfiniLED brings their own extensive market and customer knowledge in its identified target growth areas.
“The μLED technology brings technological advances to customers by controlling the light directly at the point where it is created. As well as our core devices, InfiniLED also delivers unique solutions for customer needs. This engagement with Tyndall allows InfiniLED to develop solutions that are tailored at the chip level and to include all the required optical and control supports. This enables InfiniLED to deliver plug-and-play solutions to customers across a range of markets including diagnostic devices, LED printing, microscopy and others.” added Dr Bill Henry, chief commercial officer of InfiniLED.
The securing of this investment marks the next step in moving this world-class Irish research from the lab into the market place. It will allow InfiniLED to build its team, to ramp-up development of the technology and to target new opportunities.
InfiniLED is a portfolio company of ScienceWorks Ventures plc, a London-based IP commercialisation company with a major operations centre in Cork, Ireland. Tyndall National Institute, University College Cork is one of Europe's leading research centres.
