Creating connections between components can be a time-consuming layout task for any integrated circuit design project. This is also an increasing factor for PIC designs, as the overall number of components being deployed in PICs is increasing, and both optical as well as electrical connections must be made. The routing rules for PICs are significantly different than for digital CMOS ICs. Photonic connections are made using waveguides that are curvilinear in nature to reduce light loss, reflections, and dispersion.
During this Synopsys webinar, we will discuss Synopsys’ approach to implementing fast, accurate electrical and optical interconnections in a PIC design using AutoRouting in OptoDesigner.
Our team of experts will demonstrate AutoRouting and provide layout engineers with tips to adjust their design approaches for routing layers and types. Engineers will learn how to reduce errors and development time.
