LioniX International is using powerful photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology to improve performance and reduce cost, power consumption and size in several high-tech verticals.

Our proprietary silicon nitride waveguide platform – TriPleXtm,  is particularly suited to a new wave of high-value-added applications because of its very low propagation loss, broad transparency range and inherent adaptability. As well as responding to the needs of new applications, LioniX International has deep expertise in serving the traditional telecom, datacom and satcom sectors, where its technology expertise is driving the development of a next generation of signal processing systems.

With our vertically integrated approach of designing, manufacturing and assembling customized PICs, we support our customers in matching the PIC technology to their needs, both in specification and in volume.

The sections below provide an overview of each of our main areas of vertical expertise, though these are not exhaustive.
