Press Release

Intelliconnect (CryoCoax Division) and Delft Circuits BV are proud to announce the signing of a Sales and Technology partnership agreement which sees CryoCoax becoming the sole UK and US distributor for Delft Circuits unique and innovative product family.

The Delft Circuits product combines flexible cryogenic cabling with standard RF connector interfaces in order to produce an interconnect solution which offers both single and multi-channel cables which combine microwave performance with compactness, durability and a low thermal load.
Roy Phillips, Intelliconnect’s CEO was enthusiastic in his assessment of the agreement. “This product is a potential game-changer in the world of cryogenic interconnects. We see it as the perfect complement to our existing range of Cryogenic cables and assemblies. The technical brilliance and innovation of the Delft Circuits team combined with our connector and
commercial expertise is the perfect combination.”

Daan Kuitenbrouwer, Founder and COO of Delft Circuits was equally keen to commend the partnership. “ We are very excited to join forces with IntelliConnect-CryoCoax providing innovative flexible cabling solutions for cryogenic environments with exceptional customer service.”


Delft Circuits was founded in 2017 providing a new approach to cabling and i/o in general for quantum computing and internet setups, which require increasingly high numbers of interconnects. To this end, Delft Circuits has set up an inhouse production- and development facility, where it designs, produces and tests its products. After two years of development, their proof-of-concept microwave channels have matured to ready-for-sales products and were brought to the market in early 2019. The next steps in production capabilities and microwave components are being developed to expand the product portfolio. With these developments, we address the (future) requirements of our customer base which consists of many cryo- and quantum customers worldwide.

CryoCoax is the UK/US based division of Intelliconnect solely focused on providing for the RF Interconnect needs of the worldwide Cryogenics market. Based on a business model of Innovative Design, Excellent Manufacturing, unrivalled Customer service and technology led partnerships, Intelliconnect – CryoCoax has seen significant and continuing growth in Quantum Computing, Research, Test and Measurement, Space and Medical applications during the past six years.

28ICEC-ICMC2020 canceled

Announcements | March 29th, 2020

The 28thICEC-ICMC2020 has been canceled and postponed to 2022. Hereafter you may read the official communication of the Organizing Commettee.

Dear colleagues,

we hope this message finds you well.
In recent weeks, the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) worldwide has raised great health concerns and heavily impacted our societies. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family all safe and healthy. The organizing committees of the ICEC28-ICMC 2020 has been closely monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 in the past months. We have thoroughly investigated and discussed various factors impacting the conference with the ICEC & ICMC committee members, health officials, academics and industries. After careful consideration and comprehensive evaluation of currently available information, including the escalating health concerns, possible restrictions on international traveling, ongoing
uncertainties of the virus development, etc., we have made the difficult decision to cancel the ICEC28-ICMC 2020, originally scheduled on 31st August – 4th September
in Hangzhou, China (

We understand this might be disappointing for those who love the ICEC-ICMC for years and our young-generation colleagues as well. However, we must put your health, safety and security on our highest priorities. All the financial supports received from the international and domestic sponsors will be 100% returned as soon as possible. Fortunately, we would like to further update you that, as kindly approved by the ICEC-ICMC committees, the next conference ICEC28-ICMC 2022 will be still held in Hangzhou, China in 2022 in order to maintain the long-lasting tradition of alternating between Asia and Europe. The ICEC-ICMC conference to be organized by CERN, originally planned in 2022, is shifted to 2024. We sincerely hope that you will continue to support our cryogenic society by attending the ICEC28-ICMC 2022.

We will be very grateful if you could kindly share the above news to your colleagues. We extend our profound thanks to our colleagues around the world for your understanding, suggestions and support. We will do our best to welcome you and serve you a successful ICEC28-ICMC 2022 in Hangzhou, China. Facing to the unprecedented challenge together, we believe the normal world will and must come back soon.

Please stay safe and stay healthy.

Sincerely yours,
ICEC28-ICMC 2020
Organizing Committee

ECD2020 postponed

Announcements | March 20th, 2020

In view of the worldwide developments of the Corona-crisis we decided to postpone the European Cryogenics Days. At this moment,  the situation in Europa is rapidly deteriorating and it is unclear what the coming weeks will bring. Anticipating on earlier developments in China, we hope that by the end of May the worst is over, but most probably the situation of daily life will not yet have returned to “normal”. It is not decided yet whether the ECD will be postponed to later this year, or whether it is completely canceled and the next ECD will be the one in 2021.

On behalf of the local organizing committee and the Board of the CSE,
Marcel ter Brake and Srinivas Vanapalli

European Cryogenics Course 2020

Announcements | February 29th, 2020

The application for the European Cryogenics Course (ECC) 2020 is now open.

The Course is organized by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technical University of Dresden (TUD) / Germany, the Faculty of Mechanical and Power Engineering of the Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (WUST) / Poland and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) of Trondheim / Norway.
Lecturers are members of the organizing universities and a number of invited external experts. In addition to the lessons, the program of the ECC includes technical excursions, tutorials and demonstrations. The weekends are foreseen mainly for social activities and travel.
The course will finish with two written examinations concerning the two main subjects (cryogenics, fundamentals and processes).

The ECC will extend over 3 weeks during Summer 2020 and is open to all graduate and doctoral students. Due to the limited capacity interested students should apply for participating before the end of April.

Locations and dates will be:
Aug. 10th  - 14th, 2020   Dresden - Basics, liquid hydrogen technology
Aug. 17th  - 21st, 2020   Wroclaw - Helium cryogenics, cryostat technology
Aug. 24th  - 28th, 2020   Trondheim - Liquified natural gas, coolers.
In case that not the full period of three weeks can be made available by a prospective participant, individual solutions can be arranged.

Detailed information about the application process and the program of the course may be found on the flyer or at the dedicated webpage.

You may use moreover the enclosed flyer to inform potentially interested persons.
Since 2008 the ECC collects  participants from all over Europe.

For interested young professionals often a sponsorship arrangement could be agreed with the respective employer to allow an additional participation.  

Applications should be sent until end of April. Later applications can be regarded only in case of remaining places or by waiting list. The course usually is overbooked, therefore early applications are suggested. For the same reason, fitting pre-requisitions and a specific cryogenic interest should be demonstrated.
