LONDON IPtronics A/S (Roskilde, Denmark), a start up focusing on silicon for parallel optical applications, has closed a Series B round worth $ 10.25 million, to be used for further developments of its technology and expansion of global sales.
The round was led by Creandum and Sunstone Capital, with participation from existing venture capital investor 10IPT10, as well as members of the management team.
The market for parallel optical interconnects, devices that are forecasted to replace electrical high speed connections in next generation computer systems and storage networks, is growing fast, the company says.
Founded in 2003 by a group of former Giga A/S and Intel Corp. managers, IPtronics has developed a chip technology that enables small, low cost, low power optical interconnect systems that computer manufactures are beginning to adopt to overcome the physical constraints from using copper-based connections over high speed interfaces and backplanes.
IPtronics is already supplying a 4-channel chipset that it claims lowers the power consumption of optical interconnections by a factor of four.
It plans to start sampling later this year a 12-channel device that it will be demonstrating at next week's OFC in San Diego, California.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
