WHAT WE DO

Supplying PIC based components and modules in scalable production volumes.

PHIX provides an assembly and packaging service for photonic integrated circuits (PICs). We support chip prototypes as well as high-volume manufacturing and our engineers help optimize your design early on. We are a one-stop shop fully tailored to your needs. That’s how we prepare your products for tomorrow’s society, today.

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 core competence, in which we aim to become world leader.

  • 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

Fiber Arrays from stock

PHIX offers a broad range of high quality vgroove optical fiber arrays for photonic integrated circuit (PIC) connections. We have a dedicated and flexible fiber placement machine and can attach an optional spot size converter. We have many fiber arrays available from stock and can make custom configurations for you.

CPS Prototype package

CPS Prototype Package

PHIX has developed a plug and play solution that allows for flexible, quick and easy prototyping of your first chips without the need to develop an expensive customized package. The Characterization Package Standard (CPS) comes with some design rules in order to be able to perform the wire bonding and fiber array attachment in a straight-forward way.

PHIX builds series of PIXAPP designed PIC modules

This PIXAPP commercial prototype package involved the assembly of a silicon photonics integrated circuit (PIC) onto an electronic printed circuit board that has an integrated thermo-electric cooler (TEC) mounted below it. For ease of assembly, the optical fiber array...

PHIX Photonics Assembly secures funding from Innovation Industries and Oost NL

PHIX started its operations in July 2018 to serve the growing demand for photonic assembly activities. PHIX’s goal of becoming the world leader in this field has come one step closer with large new investments from Innovation Industries and existing investor Oost NL...

Detecting viruses using integrated photonic devices

Integrated photonics can play an important role in developing fast, light and low cost-devices for the detection of viruses. This was the conclusion of the webinar on Biosensors for Virus Detection, organized by the European Photonics Industry Consortium (EPIC) on...

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 is in the prototype phase, our Characterization Package Standard (CPS) is an easy and affordable way to test your technology quickly. When your chip is ready for volume production, we provide custom-tailored packaging services, using our wide experience in various markets.
