Designing a PAM4 Transceiver
April 3, 2020, Online
9:00 AM to 12:30 PM CET
This workshop provides a detailed introduction to photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology for datacom applications using the Synopsys PIC Design Suite to simulate and design a four-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM4) transceiver.
You will learn to identify the building blocks and process design kits (PDKs) you need to design and simulate datacom PIC devices for a technology platform.
You will also learn how to use key features of the PIC Design Suite including model creation for circuit simulation, virtual lab simulation tools (OptSIm Circuit) to obtain eye diagrams and frequency domain simulations, the bidirectional interface between circuit and layout generation and verification (OptoDesigner), and back annotation and design for manufacturing.
