Rockley Photonics Announces R&D Plans for Tyndall

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Rockley Photonics Ltd. plans to establish an R&D center at Tyndall National Institute in Cork, Ireland.

The center will support Rockley’s growing global activities and, in particular, its silicon photonics research program. The announcement is part of a three-year collaboration with the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC) based at Tyndall, representing a joint investment of €3.4 million ($4.2 million) by Rockley and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) to advance silicon photonics from the lab to market. Rockley aims to address the growing demand for faster and more energy-efficient data communications in data centers.

“Our highly innovative silicon photonics technology is designed to address the optical input-output challenges facing next-generation data centers, allowing network architects to take advantage of new high-density, low-power connectivity solutions and explore new network topologies and equipment design,” said Andrew Rickman, founder, CEO, and chairman of Rockley Photonics. “This investment with the SFI Research Centre IPIC will enable us to combine our expertise and utilize Tyndall’s state-of-the-art facilities to develop groundbreaking early-stage technologies, which will not only have a huge impact on the future architecture design of large data centers, but will also improve the power and computational capacity of new consumer devices and provide robust sensing solutions in the autonomous vehicles and consumer device sectors, and other areas. We’re grateful for the support the project is receiving from Science Foundation Ireland.”

Rockley Photonics is a developer of photonics solutions for connectivity and sensing applications.
