SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 2, 2016 — A software environment from Cadence Design Systems Inc. incorporates tools for automated design of photonic integrated circuits (PICs).

Built around Cadence's Virtuoso custom design platform, the environment enables schematic or layout-driven design flows for photonic and electronic circuits, photonic component parameter extraction and model generation, photonic circuit simulation, and photonic mask layout implementation for both monolithic and hybrid 3D PICs.

The environment works with INTERCONNECT, a time- and frequency-domain mixed-signal photonic circuit simulation engine from Lumerical Solutions Inc. It also incorporates the OptoDesigner photonic chip design suite from Phoenix BV, giving designers access to parameterized primitives and photonic building blocks to enable interactive or scripted waveguide and component creation.
