Our partners

Large organisations

As an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or Tier 1 organisation, we act as a neutral intermediary on your behalf to integrate you into collaborative research and development (CR&D) projects.

Through our extensive network, we can expose you to new ideas and innovations, and connect you with supply chain vendors working on next-generation compound semiconductor technologies.

We also de-risk the CR&D process for you when working with cutting-edge compound semiconductor technology.
