Photeon was founded in 2000. Initially the focus was in the field of integrated optics, developing designs for PLC (Planar Lightwave Circuits) products, as well as software tools for the optical industry.
Photeon developed active and passive optical network component designs for FTTx network applications, as well as planar lightwave circuit products.
In 2008 the company moved from Bregenz to Lustenau where it is still located.
The company focus has successfully shifted towards engineering design services, and in particular to system and VLSI design.
