PDK AMF (Full Silicon Photonics)

The silicon photonics process design kit contains building blocks for both circuit simulation and layout generation, mask layers, and design rules for Advanced Micro Foundry’s (AMF) AMFSiP Platform.

This PDK is a plug-in library for OptoDesigner and OptSim Circuit developed by AMF. In addition to the photonic elements from the standard generic design library, the PDK contains technology-specific information like mask layer names, design rules, validated building blocks and models, die sizes, and GDS file settings.
