Introduction

Silicon photonics is a cost effective technology that can enable large scale photonic integrated circuits for a variety of applications, from bio-sensing circuits to on-chip and intra-chip communication systems. Broad adoption of silicon photonics requires standardized design flows comparable to what is available for electronic circuits.

 

As part of a continuing initiative to drive the broad adoption of integrated photonics technology, Lumerical works with leading technology partners to develop design workflows and model libraries that bring Process Design Kit (PDK) driven design automation to photonic integrated circuit design.

 

Lumerical and Mentor Graphics, along with PhoeniX Software, have collaborated to develop a complete design flow for silicon photonics combining familiar EDA tool flows developed for electronic IC design with leading edge photonic system and component simulation tools.
