New features in version 2019.09 of our PIC Design Suite, which includes the OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner tools, are:
- Enhanced algorithms for inter-domain conversions (time and frequency) in OptSim Circuit that speed simulation times by up to 2x.
- New design rule checks (DRCs) in OptoDesigner that speed calculations by up to 20x.
- Significant improvements to the PIC layout versus schematic (LVS) flow to support large port count photonic devices and netlist extraction.
- Updates to the bidirectional interface between OptSim Circuit and OptoDesigner to support automated electrical connections in layout.
