This InP design kit contains the building blocks for fabrication runs offered by SMART Photonics
SMART Photonics is the first foundry to commercially offer a generic process for production of InP-based photonic integrated circuits. The SMART Photonics PDK consists of a comprehensive building block library, including active and passive devices for InP-based photonic integration. The PDK is evolved from the COBRA PDK that has been extensively tested by many universities, research institutes, and industrial partners in various Multi Project Wafer (MPW) runs over the past years.
This PDK is a plug-in library for OptoDesigner and OptSim Circuit. In addition to the photonic elements from the standard library, the PDK contains technology-specific layout, design rules, and device performance information supplied by the foundry. The PDK supports the interface between OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner for schematic entry, circuit simulation, and layout generation.
