HOW WE PHIX IT

To integrate PICs into devices, they need to be connected to components like optical fibers, amplifiers and electronics with great accuracy. This packaging of our customers’ PICs, either as an outsourced packaging service or as contract manufacturing production process, is PHIX’s world leading core competence.

  • We scale up with your production, from prototypes to large series
  • We support and combine many material platforms, such as Silicon, Indium Phosphide, Silicon Nitride, Lithium Niobate, Gallium Arsenide and Ion exchanged glass
  • We are your one-stop-shop, by helping you to optimally route your PIC with manufacturability and scale-up in mind
  • We have a unique process for multi-chip hybrid interfacing using edge coupling
  • We are European based and protect your intellectual property
  • We have partnerships with key players in the photonics industry
  • We have fiber arrays available for shipment directly from stock

Read our white paper on spot size converters

PHIX is pleased to offer you a free white paper about spot size converters (SSCs). By improving the mode field matching, these optional extensions to our fiber arrays greatly reduce coupling losses between optical fibers and photonic integrated circuits. Our free...

PIC Design

Assembly and volume production can only take place when PICs are interfaced correctly into qualified modules. That’s why chip design is critical. Our qualified engineers advise you on how to design your PIC in such a way that it can be assembled and produced in scalable volumes.

PIC Packaging

Photonic chips need to be interfaced with other components, such as fiber arrays, free space and electronics, before they can find their way into your product. If your PIC-based module is in the prototype phase, our Prototype Packages are an easy and affordable way to test your technology quickly. When your chip is ready for volume production, we provide Volume Packaging services, using our wide experience in various markets.
