Release notes Filter Toolbox AWG Designer 1.2

The filter toolbox AWG designer, version 1.2, provides a new type of waveguide bundle, which automatically expands the waveguides in the straight sections. Also the waveguide modeling is done more accurately for these straight sections. It is also modified to use the new IPKISS 3.1.3 circuit modeling syntax. In addition, this release contains several bugfixes and small improvements. The highlights are shown below:

  1. Expanded waveguides

1. Expanded waveguides

The AWG waveguide bundle can now by default flare out to wider waveguides for the straight sections. This is important in order to reduce the cross-talk levels of the AWG.
