The JePPIX Pilot Line is looking to support and co-finance development projects with innovative partners who are ready to transition from the first proof-of-concept circuit to production. This support is specific to indium phosphide (InP) photonic integrated circuit technologies. Use cases in new and emerging markets are particularly encouraged.

Each development project has a maximum ticket price of €160k worth of technical services delivered directly by software, design, foundry and/or testing services of the JePPIX Pilot Line. Any ward would have a maximum of 50% of the total development cost. Such projects will be showcased as examples of the capabilities of both the developer and the Pilot Line.

Applicants selected for the financial support program receive:

  • Access to industrial prototyping and pre-commercial manufacturing services of InP Photonic Integrated Circuits technology;
  • Benefit from pilot line marketing and dissemination activities featuring the applicant activities and results;
  • Customized support can include services to mature the circuit design, access pre-commercial fabrication of dedicated wafers, and the automated testing for circuits.
  • A maximum of €160k worth of technical services delivered directly by software, design, foundry and/or testing services of the JePPIX Pilot Line.
  • There is no direct support for packaging services, but your Account Manager may be able to orientate you with a parallel PhotonHub support program.
