Scintil Photonics

Scintil Photonics, a Grenoble, France-based supplier of silicon photonic integrated circuits with monolithically integrated lasers and optical amplifiers, raised €13.5M in Second funding.

The round was led by Robert Bosch Venture Capital with participation from Supernova Invest, Innovacom and Bpifrance.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate CMOS-based industrialization and global commercialization of its III-V Augmented Silicon Photonic ICs for optical interconnects.

Led by CEO Sylvie Menezo, Scintil Photonics develops and markets Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs): integrated laser arrays, multiples of 800 Gbit/sec transmitters and receivers, tunable transmitters and receivers, as well as optical I/O for near chip and chip-chip communication). Its circuits are fabricated on a proprietary III/V-Augmented Silicon Photonics technology manufactured in a multi-customer silicon foundry. For accelerated adoption, the company also delivers the control electronics and reference package implementations.

Based in Grenoble, France, and Toronto, Canada, Scintil is currently taking its innovative product to industrial level as it gears up for mass production.
