Synopsys will demo the following optical datacom and high-speed IP solutions at OFC 2019.
RSoft Device Tools
The RSoft photonic device tools support the design and simulation of both passive and active photonic devices for optical communications, optoelectronics, and semiconductor manufacturing. The demo will highlight the latest innovations in the tools, such as new features to advance the design of optics used in AR/VR systems, as well as for the design of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and creation of process design kits (PDKs).
OptSim & ModeSYS
The RSoft OptSim and ModeSYS tools simulate the performance of optical datacom system links through comprehensive simulation techniques and component models. The demo will highlight features to evaluate PIC performance in the context of an optical datacom system.
PIC Design Suite: OptoDesigner & OptSim Circuit
Synopsys is driving the advancement of photonic integrated circuit technologies with its PIC Design Suite, which comprises the OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner tools. The demo will show how the PIC Design Suite offers a seamless design flow with photonic-aware physical layout capabilities enabled by support for foundry-specific PDKs.
400G Hyperscale Data Centers with DesignWare 56G Ethernet PHY IP
See how you can use the PAM-4 DesignWare 56G Ethernet PHY IP to support optical and copper interconnects to enable your 400G hyperscale data center SoCs. The demo will show the transceiver IP performance exceeding the standard specification limits for jitter and interference tolerance. The scalable IP architecture enables easy migration to 800G Ethernet applications.
