The silicon photonics process design kit contains the building blocks for circuit simulation and layout generation, mask layers, and design rules as developed by Analog Photonics for the Multi Project Wafer runs offered by AIM Photonics at the SUNYPoly facilities
This PDK is a plug-in library for OptoDesigner and OptSim Circuit and supports the Multi Project Wafer runs provided by AIM Photonics. The PDK is developed by Analog Photonics. Furthermore, it is supporting the interface between OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner. 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, s-matrix compact models, die templates for layout generation, and GDS file settings.
