Photonic System Design and Simulation

RSoft Photonic System Design Suite

RSoft Photonic System Design Suite allows users to design and simulate current and next generation optical communication systems and photonic integrated circuits at the signal propagation level.

Currently three software packages are part of the suite:

  • OptSim, ModeSYS - Simulate single mode and multimode optical communication systems at the signal propagation level.
  • OptSim Circuit – Models single- and multi-stage bidirectional photonic integrated circuits (PICs)

These advanced tools enhance and accelerate user-modeling capabilities and provide real field design scenarios using extensive industry specifications. Our users include optical component and equipment manufacturers, system integrators, service providers, as well as government labs and academic institutions. Whether you are interested in maximizing performance, minimizing costs, reducing time to market, fast prototyping, or analyzing multiple "what-if" scenarios for optical communication systems, these tools will become an inseparable partner and the secret of your success.

Key Features

OptSim, ModeSYS
  • Enable the user to design and simulate single mode (OptSim) and multimode (ModeSYS) optical communication systems at the signal propagation level.
  • Virtual prototyping reduces the need for costly and lengthy physical prototyping for increased productivity and decreased time-to-market.
  • Optimization of the design for enhanced performance and reduced cost.
  • Common graphical interface but separate licenses allows users to choose only the simulation engine that is relevant to their work.
  • Assist in the discovery and analysis of next generation optical communication systems deploying new modulation formats.
  • Interfaces with 3rd party tools such as MATLAB, Cadence Spectre, Liekki Application Designer, Luna Optical Vector Analyzer.
OptSim Circuit
  • Extends OptSim’s system modeling capabilities to include single- and multi-stage bidirectional PICs
  • Models bidirectional propagation for both optical and electrical signals
  • Seamless interface with OptSim allows PIC performance evaluation and optimization at the system level
  • Models multipath interference (MPI) from network and PIC elements
