Based on your technical specifications, VLC Photonics can design a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) that implements the required functionalities on the target platform.
As a fabless and independent design house, we are skilled at the main photonic materials: IIIV semiconductors (InP and GaAs) and Silicon Photonics (thin and thick SOI, SiO2/PLC, Si3N4/TriPleXTM), combining multiple design frameworks and toolboxes.
Moreover, VLC Photonics has developed its own proprietary modules and libraries of functional building blocks, guaranteeing always the best performance and optimal design technology match to minimize risks.
We comply with industry standard design techniques for manufacturability, testability and packaging. Moreover, your intellectual property will always be confidential and secured, and any IP developed through the integration process can be transferred to you on demand.
Our services include:
- Custom design service: modelling, simulation and design of any proprietary photonic component, subsystem or building block beyond standard libraries offered by foundries. Main technologies include: SOI/silicon photonics, InP/III-V photonics, silicon nitride/TriPleXTM, silica/PLC.
- Layout service: layout of photonic integrated circuits according to a specific foundry process and PDK libraries.
- Design support: engineering support for your in-house design team, to help on the design, layout and DRC tasks, as well as an overall review and check including advice on design for manufacturing, test and packaging.
- PDK development: customized PDK implementations on your specific PIC manufacturing platform.
