IPKISS AWG Designer
For photonic IC designers who enjoy ease-of-use and flexibility, the IPKISS AWG Designer provides an integrated design environment to create manufacturable AWGs with a press-of-the-button flow.
About this module
The IPKISS AWG Designer is an IPKISS module that provides an integrated design environment to design Arrayed Waveguide Gratings (AWGs) from high-level specifications to manufacturable AWG layouts, offering expertise , assistance and control across all design stages:
AWG high-level specifications
AWG physical synthesis
Simulation and verification
DRC-clean layout generation
The IPKISS AWG Designer enables optimization across all stages of the design flow while having a press-the-button flow to a manufacturable layout.
Each step of the process can be customized to suit specific requirements in terms of layout or simulation.
The final AWG design can be used within the IPKISS Photonics Design Platform to complete the chip design and prepare for tape-out.
PIC designer benefits
Easy layout and simulation in a single integrated design environment, using one standard language
Fully parametric and customizable design flow
AWG design validation using analysis functions built into IPKISS
DRC-clean layout with IPKISS layout functionalities
