CryoCoax and Delft Circuits BV announced the signing of a sales and technology partnership agreement which sees CryoCoax becoming the sole U.K. and U.S. distributor for Delft Circuits’ unique and innovative product family.
The Delft Circuits product combines flexible cryogenic cabling with standard RF connector interfaces in order to produce an interconnect solution which offers both single and multi-channel cables combining microwave performance with compactness, durability and a low thermal load.
Roy Phillips, Intelliconnect’s CEO was enthusiastic in his assessment of the agreement. “This product is a potential game-changer in the world of cryogenic interconnects. We see it as the perfect complement to our existing range of cryogenic cables and assemblies. The technical brilliance and innovation of the Delft Circuits team combined with our connector and commercial expertise is the perfect combination.”
Daan Kuitenbrouwer, founder and COO of Delft Circuits was equally keen to commend the partnership. “We are very excited to join forces with CryoCoax to provide innovative flexible cabling solutions for cryogenic environments with exceptional customer service.”
Delft Circuits was founded in 2017 providing a new approach to cabling and I/O in general for quantum computing and internet setups, which require increasingly high numbers of interconnects. To this end, Delft Circuits has set up an in-house production and development facility, where it designs, produces and tests its products. After two years of development, their proof-of-concept microwave channels have matured to ready-for-sales products and were brought to the market in early 2019. The next steps in production capabilities and microwave components are being developed to expand the product portfolio. With these developments, they address the (future) requirements of their customer base which consists of many cryo- and quantum customers worldwide.
CryoCoax is the U.K./U.S.-based division of Intelliconnect solely focused on providing for the RF interconnect needs of the worldwide cryogenics market. Based on a business model of innovative design, excellent manufacturing, unrivalled customer service and technology led partnerships, Intelliconnect–CryoCoax has seen significant and continuing growth in quantum computing, research, test and measurement, space and medical applications during the past six years.
CryoCoax’s cryogenic cables and components work to 2 K (-271.15°C) and are ideally suited to a wide range of applications including quantum computing and research, test and measurement, instrumentation, medical and material research and cryogenic systems including dilution refrigerators, superconducting magnet systems, low temperature detector systems, infrared array systems.
In addition to custom cable assemblies, Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd manufactures a wide range of standard and custom RF connectors and components, including waterproof and fast turnaround custom designs which are undertaken without NRE charges to their customers. Intelliconnect also manufacture a large range of coaxial adaptors to facilitate inter-series connection and gender change etc. Typical applications include MIL and aerospace, marine, oil and gas, medical and general microwave markets.
