Information Session: PIC Design using Synopsys RSoft OptSim Circuit and PhoeniX Software OptoDesigner

  • Synopsys Booth #2519
  • Tuesday, March 21, 10 am – 12 pm
  • Wednesday, March 22, 2 pm – 4 pm

Presented by Mitchell Heins, Business Development – North America group of PhoeniX Software

Learn more about photonic integrated circuit (PIC) design flows from ideas to simulation and fabrication. The PDAFlow-compliant interface between OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner provides users with a seamless path from idea to realization, from function to mask. The info session will include demos and design examples in the RSoft OptSim Circuit and PhoeniX OptoDesigner tools, including the American Institute for Manufacturing Integrated Photonics (AIM Photonics) PDK. The presenter and RSoft team will be available for one-on-one discussions with attendees interested in exploring custom PIC solutions and requesting evaluation copies of OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner.

Meet the Experts: Modeling fiber nonlinearities via GN model link emulator in coherent, long-haul terabit fiber-optic networks using RSoft OptSim

  • Synopsys Booth #2519
  • Tuesday, March 21, 10:30 – 11:30 am
  • Wednesday, March 22, 11 am – 12 noon

Presented by Andrea Carena and Vittorio Curri, Department of Electronics and Telecommunications (DET), Polytechnique of Torino, Italy

In this meeting, we will discuss the theory behind the Gaussian Noise (GN) model, its benefits to fiber-optic network modeling, and design examples in OptSim.

The Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) is the premier international event for latest advances in optical communications and networking. The conference includes technical sessions, short courses, workshops, and panel discussions that focus on the newest research and developments as well as the latest applications.

Products and Services

See a demo of RSoft OptSim™ Circuit, an innovative tool for the design automation of next-generation photonic integrated circuits (PICs). As an extension of our award-winning OptSim tool, OptSim Circuit provides an ideal platform for modeling optical systems and PICs that operate with coupling and feedback of different optical and electrical signal paths.

RSoft tools are now integrated into the Sentaurus Workbench for complete electro-optic device simulation. RSoft tools automatically load Sentaurus geometry and support native bidirectional data interchange with Sentaurus.

Speak with our staff to learn how you can solve your design challenges with the latest RSoft product enhancements. Also learn how RSoft products interface with CODE V® and LightTools® for highly accurate analysis of small-feature optical structures.
