VLC Photonics Innovative Business Model
VLC Photonics, a fabless design house for photonic integrated circuits (PICs), says the key success factor for its innovative business model is a holistic approach to photonic integration. The company’s clients are guided through all the stages of the PIC development cycle, providing a fast, low-cost, and reliable entry point into photonic integration without the need to invest large amounts of resources. In this way, VLC Photonics says it can improve its customers’ products by integrating PICs with increased performance and reduced costs versus their currently used technologies.
