White paper on Seamless Integration of Photonic Circuit Simulation and Layout Design

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.
