Joint European Platform for Photonic Integration of Components and Circuits

The JePPIX survey

JePPIX is surveying the photonic integrated circuit (PIC) user community to better understand future requirements. Take the JePPIX survey here.

JePPIX has successfully brought the European InP photonic integrated circuit (PIC) community together as a coherent force to advance and promote technology. JePPIX provides

  • Open access technology. The Process Design Kit (PDK) at the heart of the multiproject wafers technology provides seamless cooperation between designers, software developers, fabs, and prototype builders and one-stop-shop brokering.
  • Technology acceleration, enabling major advances in technology building blocks, leveraging know-how from multiple academic and industrial partners, across a number of joint R&D projects. JePPIX R&D focusses on InP and SiNx integration platforms and also hybrid combinations.
  • Training events and technology forums enable designers to skill-up and connect with innovators and experts in the photonic integration eco-system. JePPIX connects at expos, workshops and offers training courses around the globe.
  • Eco-system development is at the heart of what we do. The JePPIX Roadmap maps out the future evolution of technology, markets and the eco-system. Be a part of the next JePPIX Roadmap by completing the new technology PIC designer survey.

The JePPIX eco-system includes many businesses spread across process development, chip fabrication, packaging, software development, design and training and several hundred uses and members.

High performance InP and low-loss dielectric SiNx TriPleX waveguide technologies are highly complementary. Because of the organizational similarity in handling MPW runs, JePPIX supports both InP and TriPleX technology.

Information outreach is an important part of the work of JePPIX

Support in your area: JePPIX stimulates the creation and operation of regional support centres. The centres reach out to potential users, helping them to create affordable application specific photonic integrated circuits ASPICs for their own needs. Support covers design, production and testing of PICs. The European network is organised through the H2020 PICS4ALL coordination and support action.

JePPIX membership is currently free. For more information about JePPIX and becoming a member contact us. JePPIX brokering operations are run by a small independent team, which includes a full-time coordinator. The team reports to the JePPIX partner board, who represent the JePPIX eco-system.

JePPIX is cooperating with Photon Delta, linking PIC technology innovation with business acceleration.
