BERLIN, Feb. 14, 2017 — The VPItoolkit PDK Lionix process design kit from VPIphotonics GmbH and Phoenix Software BV supports the seamless integration of circuit simulation and layout design of application-specific photonics integrated circuits to be processed on Lionix International BV’s Triplex technology platform.
The kit is a pluggable library extension to VPIcomponentMaker photonic circuits providing circuit-level simulation support of the kit’s building blocks for the Triplex integrated optical waveguide technology. Sub-circuits with fixed locations can be connected by smart elastic optical connectors enabling combination of graphical schematic capture and automated waveguide routing.
Designers can rapidly prototype circuits with prerequisite functionality without going deep into the details of device layout and fabrication process.
