HiLight Semiconductor Ltd, a “Fabless Chip Company”, was founded in 2012 by veterans of several previous start-ups. HiLight design and supply analogue and mixed-signal CMOS ICs for high speed fiber-optics based communications and networking applications.

HiLight specialises in particular in the world’s highest performance PMD and PHY ICs in advanced CMOS nodes, for example:

  • Highest Sensitivity CMOS TIAs @ 1, 2.5, 10, 12 and 28Gbps+
  • FP/DFB Laser Drivers and VCSEL Drivers to 25 and 50Gbps+
  • Lowest Power Consumption, highest-integration ‘Combos’ with embedded micro controller and non-volatile memory, for Continuous or Burst-Mode PON applications
  • Coming soon: 100Gbps Rx and Tx ICs
