In the news

The word is getting out. Paragraf is first in the world in the mass production of graphene-based electronics using standard semiconductor processes. Using our unique foundry capability, we bring to market differentiated graphene-based electronics as standard products, such as magnetic sensors and biosensors. See below for our ongoing news about our technology, products, the markets we’re helping, and our influence in the UK and global semiconductor industry.

Graphene pioneer Paragraf shortlisted for coveted MacRobert UK engineering prize
Cambs-based graphene technology powerhouse Paragraf is in a three-way fight for the coveted MacRobert Award from the Royal Academy of Engineering
Paragraf’s Semiconductor Biosensor Has Multiomics Capability
With the recent acquisition of Cardea Bio, a CRISPR-Chip company, Paragraf demonstrated the novel detection of both protein and RNA biosignals on a single graphene-based biosensor
Ministers are sabotaging our tech industry
Innovative British companies have the know-how to shape the future but are being let down by a paralysed government
UK Chip Startup Paragraf Extols US’s Allure in San Diego Deal
UK chip startup Paragraf Ltd. has bought a California-based competitor and joined other British technology businesses like ARM Ltd. in basing their growth plans in the US.
Britain’s semiconductor champions could conquer the world, if Sunak grasps the nettle
Paragraf is the sort of gold dust company that Britain vitally needs if it is to sustain an advanced semiconductor industry, and if it is to avoid getting crushed in the arms race for global chip ascendancy.
Paragraf opens second UK graphene electronics manufacturing site
... this new manufacturing facility will enable us to not only meet growing demand for our existing products, but also give us the space to develop new products to fuel our pipeline…
Can the UK become a science superpower?
"Imagine computers with graphene chips, 50% less energy consumption, 1000 times faster, So it really is a transformational material," says Simon Thomas, Paragraf CEO.
Is EU’s bet on graphene about to pay out?
One of the most auspicious solutions was pioneered by Paragraf, a company that commercializes graphene-based electronics. The Cambridge University spin-out has developed a method of producing high-quality graphene on semiconductor wafers of up to 20 cm in diameter.
Graphene pioneer eyes biosensor market
"With our disruptive pipeline in novel IVD [in-vitro diagnostic] products, we aim to make a major contribution to resolving some of the most intractable problems in health care globally, including antimicrobial resistance [and] the early detection of cancers and cardiovascular diseases," Thomas said.
UK semiconductors need of a strategy, say Nexperia, Imagination, ISE and Paragraf
...the government should create a "targeted board of advisers to specifically deal with the semiconductor questions."
Graphene, the wonder material, may finally be on course to fulfil its potential
The company’s first commercial product, a magnetic field sensor, is being used in applications including quantum computing, electric vehicles and aerospace. Early customers include Rolls-Royce and the CERN research laboratory in Switzerland.
Graphene is Finally Coming to Electronic, Industrial Applications
"We use a standard metal organic CVD process that's already used in semiconductor processing, and there's a toolset ready for this," said [Paragraf CEO John] Tingay. "So on Day 1 our graphene is manufacturable and scalable."
As Hall effect and magnetic sensors continue to develop, Nick Flaherty reports on the growing uses in EVs
Graphene has emerged as a key material for Hall effect sensors.
Developing a new breed of encoders
The industrial sector is about to experience a step change in what can be achieved with regard to the resolutions that magnetic encoders will support. Through designing graphene-based sensors into their designs, encoder manufacturers will gain advantages that will not only be of value to them, but can also be passed on to the OEMs they serve.
