Get the Most out of your PIC

We are Epiphany, a fabless photonic design house in the Netherlands. Leveraging our expertise, we empower your photonic integrated circuits, bridging today's and tomorrow's technologies to realize your vision.

What we Offer

Your Vision, our Expertise

We are here to bring your idea into reality. Our services ensure your individual needs are met every step of the way, making us the best choice to make your project a success.

PIC Design

PIC Design

As a full service company, we accompany you from your first idea to the production of your personalized PIC.

Freedom of Choice

As a fabless company we are able to combine different technologies and design frameworks to find what suits your needs best.

Production Support

As a supporter, we work tight with our customers to find the best PIC technology and foundry for the project till or throughout the production.

Foundry Enablement

We support foundries with improved PDK (process design kit) services and connecting them to a broad range of users.

The Process

Our Journey Together

We can accompany you every step of the way, from your first idea to your final PIC. Our advantage of being a fabless design house allows us to tailor each step to your individual needs.

Let's Take this Journey Together


The concept phase is fundamental for designing a chip that can be fabricated, packaged and tested.


The Design Process includes the schematic design, building block design, circuit simulation and chip layouting.


During the fabrication process the PIC will be manufactured and packaged in close contact with the partners.

Shipment & Testing

After testing the packaged chips will be delivered to you.

Our Added Value

Getting it Right the First Time

That's our guiding principle. This approach minimizes iteration cycles, facilitating swift development, rapid market entry, and enhanced efficiency.


We are a fabless design house which allows us to always pick the best technology for your vision (or project).


Backed up with world-leading experts and a strong research network, we are well-equipped to provide crucial expertise.


We drive innovation in photonic circuits by combining research with practical applications and (will) actively participate in research projects.

This is Us

One Team, one Vision

Our dedicated team works hard everyday to advance photonic innovations and transform your photonic idea into reality.
