IEEE Group IV Photonics Conference
Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai
Tuesday, August 23, 2016
2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Presented by the Synopsys RSoft Products team and PhoeniX Software
This pre-conference workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to learn how to design silicon photonics devices and integrated circuits. The workshop will have four parts:
- Overview of silicon photonics building blocks and basic circuits
- Design and optimization of passive and active photonic devices at the physical level
- Schematic-driven design and layout of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) using a foundry-provided platform design kit (PDK) and user-designed devices
- Mask layout of PIC designs, and procedures to export PICs to linked foundries for processing
The workshop provides hand-on sessions and all participants will have access to simulation and layout tools. In addition, participants may receive complimentary use of the tools after the workshop so they have an opportunity to complete and submit their designs to available foundries.
