IPKISS Photonics Design Platform

Unique first-time-right photonic IC design software

  • Use a standard language for your photonic IC (PIC) designs, models, and IP management. Leverage the benefits of IPKISS, a Python-based platform.

  • Enhance your design with IPKISS' single component definition and parametric approach for PIC design and simulation.

  • Retain and reuse the knowledge of how your chip was designed and simulated by managing your IP through a code-based approach.

  • Design manufacturable PICs and tape-out with the foundry of your choice. Retarget your designs to the foundry that fits your needs best.

  • Create components and circuits for a wide range of applications, from telecom to sensors, LiDAR, and more.

 

AUTOMATE AND INTEGRATE ALL ASPECTS OF THE DESIGN FLOW IN ONE TOOL 

Leverage one standard language

The IPKISS Python-based Platform offers one standard language for all aspects of your design flow: PIC design, model libraries, IP management.

Reduce design errors

Design and simulate parametric components and circuits from one central platform and reduce the chance of design errors.

Improve the time to market

Document, maintain and reuse your IP with a code-based approach. Adopt an iterative design cycle and reduce the time to market.

Design manufacturable PICs

IPKISS enables you to build and manage your own design library next to offering access to a wide variety of foundry process design kits (PDKs).

                        

IPKISS PDKs

Gain access to a wide range of PDKs.
Design and tape out to your foundry of choice.
