Innovative Optoelectronics Firm Leads the Way with a Brighter, Greener Vision
LASER and optoelectronics specialist Cymtec Ltd is leading the way in terms of 'green' design and innovation. The Caerphillybased company has developed leading edge LED (Light Emitting Diode) multiplexer technology that is set to revolutionise the optoelectronics industry.
The advanced patented design generates an incredibly intense beam of light by combining up to six high brightness LEDs in a compact package. The new multiplexer technology can be widely utilised in digital displays and medical instrumentation where current bulb systems are less bright, have a shorter lifespan and are expensive to replace.
The Cymtec LED multiplexer composes of highly energy efficient technology making it effectively guaranteed for life. The implications are for substantial energy cost savings with potential for the product to become a major green future technology.
Cymtec Ltd is run by CEO Ron Yandle and technical director Dr Nigel Copner. The company started in 2007 as a spin-out company from the University of Glamorgan and now is partly financed by Finance Wales.
Cymtec has been working closely alongside Flexible Support for Business (FS4B) and has been awarded pounds 10,000 funding from the Welsh Assembly Government for patenting the product in Europe, USA and Canada, and designing and manufacturing specialist production equipment. The company is currently in the process of applying for additional funding through the Welsh Assembly Single Investment Fund to assist with research and development for its LED range of products. …
