UCD University College Dublin (UCD) is a dynamic, modern university where cutting-edge research and scholarship provide a stimulating intellectual environment - the ideal surroundings for learning and discovery. Established in 1854, the university played a key role in the history of the modern Irish State and today it plays a leading part in shaping Ireland's future. As Ireland forges a new identity through relationships with international partners, the university will adopt an increasingly international outlook.

MIDAS Ireland

Midas MIDAS Ireland (Microelectronic Industry Design Association) is a joint industry and academic organisation which defines and develops the future direction of Integrated Circuit design in Ireland. It is a national cluster consisting of the microelectronics design companies and third level institutions in Ireland, building on the already-strong relationships between them.


IET The Institution of Engineering and Technology is one of the world's leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community. The IET has more than 150,000 members in 127 countries and has offices in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific.

IEEE Computational Intelligence Society

CISThe IEEE Computational Intelligence Society has gone through many transformations over the past few years. The UKRI chapter endeavours to support the UKRI Computational Intelligence researchers by bringing information and news about this exciting and progressing research field which includes innovations in neural networks, fuzzy logic and evolutionary computation and applications of these technologies. The CIS UKRI chapter aims to develop the society, for the betterment of Computational Intelligence research in the UK and ROI and, in particular, to organize and support meetings/workshops/conferences, such as the Irish Signals and Systems Conference.

IEEE Control Communications Ireland

IEEE CC IrelandThe IEEE Control and Communication (Ireland) (CC Ireland) joint chapter of the UKRI Section of the IEEE. The chapter was officially formed on the 15th December 2003 following a petition from IEEE members in Ireland.


IntelIntel Communications Europe is located on the West Coast of Ireland, just 10 minutes from Shannon International Airport. Intel Communications Europe is comprised of three functional groups: The Shannon Business Centre (SBC) which was established to provide EMEA based business and technical support for Intel Communication customers, European Software Research and Development and the Shannon Silicon Design Group. The site has grown from 20 employees in 2000 to 150 at present.


Xilinx Xilinx leads the Programmable Logic Device (PLD) market, which features a technology called the field programmable gate array (FPGA) that our company pioneered in 1984. Xilinx supplies customers with "off-the-shelf" logic devices that customers can program to perform specific functions using the development tools. This programmability provides a revolutionary alternative to fixed or custom logic devices that typically require many months to design, test, and manufacture.

Cypress Semiconductor

Cypress Cypress delivers high-performance, mixed-signal, programmable solutions that provide customers with rapid time-to-market and exceptional system value. Cypress offerings include the PSoC® Programmable System-on-Chip™, USB controllers, general-purpose programmable clocks and memories. Cypress also offers wired and wireless connectivity solutions ranging from its WirelessUSB™ radio system-on-chip, to West Bridge™ and EZ-USB® FX2LP controllers that enhance connectivity and performance in multimedia handsets. Cypress serves numerous markets including consumer, computation, data communications, automotive, industrial, and solar power.


IMEX From start-up in 1970, IMEX has offered our customers a solution based approach to instrumentation problems. We feel that this type of service can only be provided by a team of technically competent field engineers visiting, demonstrating and, where appropriate, arranging seminars and presentations of new products. Aside from instrumentation solutions, IMEX continues to produce and supply the education sector, such as our Embedded System Tools, Tektronix range, Feedback Engineering Labs and Bluetooth Interactive Whiteboards.

The Tyndall National Institute (Tyndall) was created in 2004 at the initiative of the Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment and University College Cork (UCC) to bring together complementary activities in photonics, electronics and networking research at the National Microelectronics Research Centre (NMRC), several UCC academic departments and Cork Institute of Technology (CIT). The objective is to create a research institute, which would become a focal point of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in Ireland, to support industry and academia nationally and to increase the number of qualified graduate students for the ‘knowledge economy’.
