About VLC Photonics
VLC Photonics was born in 2011 as a spin-off company from the Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications Institute (iTEAM) located at the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain), where its founders worked as researchers on optical communication systems and photonic integrated circuits for more than 20 years.
While VLC Photonics was born as a design house for photonic integrated circuits, it has evolved over the years to respond to market needs. Currently, it provides all kinds of services spanning the whole photonic integration process, from initial evaluation to design, manufacturing, test, and packaging.
Nowadays, VLC Photonics is a world pioneer on the fabless business model, offering independent pure-play services, and collaborating with a global network of foundries, packagers, and providers. The company serves customers in many markets, from communications to sensing, quantum optics, biophotonics, instrumentation, etc., and has worked with several Fortune 500 and equivalent corporations, as well as emerging start-ups and world-recognized researchers.
VLC Photonics is part of the Hitachi High-Tech group since 2020.
