MCCI Researchers Receive Funding in Enterprise Ireland Capital Equipment Funding Call

Congratulations to MCCI’s  Dr. Ivan O’Connell, Head of Precision Circuits and Dr. Darren F. Kavanagh Principal Investigator, who have been successful in the Enterprise Ireland Capital Equipment Funding Call. MCCI, is proud to be part of the Technology Centre Programme, a joint initiative between Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland. The technology Centres programme is resourced by highly qualified researchers who provide a unique ecosystem for collaboration in strategically important areas.

Commenting on the funding, John Morrissey, Executive Director, MCCI, said, “Congratulations to Dr. Kavanagh and Dr. O’ Connell who have received funding for their highly innovative projects. Our research team work tirelessly to deliver on our research roadmap which is focused on leading edge innovations for broad range of  leading edge applications.  These range from future networks to communications; Internet of Things (IOT); medical device technologies; smart agri to neuromorphic and quantum computing. The funding will enable MCCI to purchase new leading-edge equipment, engage with our industry partners  on emerging technologies that have a future need for industry and societal impact.”

Dr Ivan O’Connell’s project entitled “High End Vector Generator for Testing High Speed Analog Converters” will enable the testing of high performance analog converters and RF Chipsets . It will enable the testing and generation of Complex modulated signals up to 44 GHz, Supply for multiple modulation techniques,support for both I and Q paths and Ultra-low phase noise to enable best in class capability.

Dr Darren Francis Kavanagh’s project “Electronics R&D Testbench Equipment” will focus on the creation of an extremely valuable Electronics R&D Test bench facility at the engCORE research lab at the Institute of Technology Carlow. The equipment will enable measurement, test and characterisation of electronic circuits and systems and prototypes.
