Synopsys and Analog Photonics are pleased to announce that a new, sign-off ready process design kit (PDK) based on Analog Photonics’ silicon photonics (SiP) design library is now available for the PIC Design Suite, which includes the OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner tools complemented with Synopsys’ physical verification solution IC Validator.
Our PDK provides a large suite of components including, but not limited to, 100G capable modulators and detectors,” said Dr. Erman Timurdogan, Director of PDK Development at Analog Photonics. “With PDK v4.0, users have access to statistical models of these components based on the experimental data. The statistical models allow for prediction of the performance, yield, and corner analysis without spending the time and money to fabricate and test it.”
