Bring your Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) from prototype to production

Photonic integration is essential in realizing our digital future: light-speed, super-efficient, precise and compact. The possibilities of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs), and their fields of application, are many.

The JePPIX Pilot Line enables fabless businesses such as PhotonFirst to move from first-of-a-kind laboratory prototype to a qualified, production-ready design. We do so by offering customized service packages based on our customer’s needs. Take a look at our services by clicking the buttons below:

Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs)

Program management

Project management, design services, foundry production, test services, and root cause analysis are provided within two frameworks

Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs)

Scaling up

The JePPIX Pilot Line scales from a handful of laboratory proof-of-concept chips to many dedicated wafers of production-ready circuits.

Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs)

Test and assembly

Testing, assembly and package development are tightly coupled to the circuit design. A number of test and assembly tools are used.

Request financial support to upscale your Photonic Integrated Circuits (PIC) production

Companies that want to take their indium phosphide PICs-based prototypes into production can request financial support to reduce project costs and lower business risk. The JePPIX Pilot Line is looking to support and co-finance development projects with innovative partners that are motivated to bring a PIC-enabled product to market and showcase the competences available in the European indium phosphide Photonic Integrated Circuits ecosystem. Use cases in new and emerging markets are particularly encouraged. More details can be found here.
