With a flexible and integrated environment focused on manufacturable designs, OptoDesigner  enables efficient, high-quality PIC device development. The Key capabilities include: Photonic chip and mask layout, advanced connectors and autorouting, simulation modules and Photonic design verification. OptoDesigner has the most comprehensive photonic foundry support in the industry, with more than 30 Process Design Kits (PDKs) available from foundries around the world for photonic processes such as silicon, silicon nitride, indium phosphide, polymers, and silica on glass. OptoDesigner has enabled more than 500 tapeouts (including commercial designs) over the last three years. The IMEC PDK is a plug-in library for OptoDesigner and supports the Multi Project Wafer runs provided by imec. In addition to the photonic elements from the standard OptoDesigner library, the PDK contains technology specific information like mask layer names, design rules, validated building blocks, die sizes and GDS file settings.
