05 Sep €1.77m EU ‘Horizon 2020’ Grant Awarded for 100Gbps IC development
The European Commission have awarded a €1.774m* grant to HiLight in order to support the development of next-generation, ultra low power CMOS Integrated Circuits for 100Gbs transmission.
HiLight and the Commission considered that saving power consumption, especially in Data centres, would have a very beneficial impact on the environment, while also helping maintain the UK’s and Europe’s lead in high performance Analogue and Mixed-signal IC development.
Initial samples are expected to be available early 2017.
HiLight is actively seeking technical and commercial cooperation opportunities at 100Gbps+
