iPronics delivers first reconfigurable photonic microchips

Valencia-based start-up iPronics, the developer of a plug-and-play, programmable photonic microchip, has announced the delivery of its first shipments to several companies in distinct sectors.

The chips have been dispatched to customers in the US and Europe, including a multinational telecommunications and electronics company, a European-based optical networking company and a large US technology company.

The announcement comes just seven months after the firm announced its raising of €3.7M funding last year to bring its photonic processors to market. Its goal is to make computational photonics commercially affordable and encourage its adoption across all layers of industry.
