Foundry PDK-based 400G coherent transceiver PIC Schematic in OptSim from design to fabrication
OptSim supports the simulation of design hierarchies. Model bidirectional signal flow for both optical (single- and multi-wavelength) and electrical signals. Co-simulation with PrimeSim Continuum, which includes PrimeSim HSPICE and PrimeSim SPICE, and enables simulation of electronics in the PIC using industry leading electrical circuit simulators together with the simulation of photonic circuits. Additional features include:
In addition to supporting PIC design models and features of OptSim Circuit, OptSim provides a rich library of single- and multimode fiber-optic system design models thereby allowing testing a PIC at the system level. Measurement and plotting tools are supplied, such as optical and electrical scopes, signal, spectrum and eye diagram analyzers, Q-factor and BER estimators, power meters, etc. The intuitive representation of repeating and hierarchical elements in OptSim provides brevity and efficiency to the layouts. For example, you can create custom components and organize and reuse them in the PIC layout. OptSim libraries include:
