Packaging foundry for photonic ICs

our offering


Supplying PIC based components and modules in scalable production volumes.

Photonics is a fast-growing market. Current estimates gauge its growth to be exponential. Photonic technologies find their way to sectors including health care, automotive, consumer electronics and many more. Facilitating this growth, PHIX supplies the photonics industry with assembly and packaging services for Photonics Integrated Circuits (PICs).  Specifically, we:

  • provide engineering support toward photonics assembly in collaboration with our partners and;
  • act as component and module manufacturer and subcontractor for OEM customers

PICs revolve around three main platforms: Silicon, Indium Phosphide and Silicon Nitride – each having its preferred application area. Combining these platforms unlocks even more opportunities, providing customized solutions to a wide array of manufacturers. Our knowledge further enables to integrate PICs and electronic components in one single package. From PIC prototype to assembly and scaling up to high-volume manufacturing: PHIX is your partner in photonics. We offer a one-stop-shop fully tailored to your needs. That’s how we prepare your products for tomorrow’s society, today.


We aim to become world leader in packaging and assembly of Photonic Integrated Circuits (PICs) by supplying PIC based components and modules in scalable production volumes.

Integrating PICs and electronics in one single package. Assembled in volumes. That's PHIX.


Through the use of photonics, more and better signaling is established in comparison to devices running on traditional electron-based semiconductors. PICs allow for miniaturization of devices, more embedded functionalities and hence overall lower cost. Ongoing technological developments position PICs as being particularly suitable for sensing applications (biomedical and gas sensors), autonomous cars (LIDARs), medical devises (e.g. optical coherence tomography), bio photonics as well as for applications in tele- and datacom.

PICs are to be connected to optical fibers and electrical components, which are to be assembled in order to guarantee optimal performance. We enable your products to reach economies of scale – through assembly and volume manufacturing of PICs – and package them into qualified modules.

PIC Design

Assembly and volume production can take place only when PICs are interfaced correctly. That’s why chip design is pivotal. We advise you on how to design your PIC in such a way that it can be assembled and produced in scalable volumes. Our qualified engineers help you modulate the PIC in order for your business to thrive.

PIC Packaging

A PIC by itself is to be assembled and packaged before it can find its way into your product. Multiple modes of interfacing (such as with fiber arrays, free-space and electronics) are imperative for unleashing the benefits of PICs. Through volume manufacturing by our foundry services, we offer scalable volumes of customized products. That’s how we provide a one-stop-shop – from design to assembly of the PIC – to our customers.
