White paper on Seamless Integration of Photonic Circuit Simulation and Layout Design
By VPI Photonics and Luceda
For designers that prefer to start working from a graphical schematic capture tool: VPIcomponentmaker is used to design and simulate the PIC within a complete optical system. IPKISS seamlessly generates the Python based layout
of the circuit for improved yield and reliability
Read the whitepaper and learn from the 2 design examples:
- A widely tunable laser based on the PDK for an InP-based PIC foundry process by SMART Photonics.
- An integrated optical buffer based on the PDK for a SiN-based PIC foundry process by LIGENTEC.
Both VPIcomponentMaker and IPKISS provide PDKs for these processes.
