ENSCHEDE, Netherlands, Nov. 13, 2017 — Version 5.1.4 of the OptoDesigner software from PhoeniX BV focuses on adding more automation to the design layout process while providing the foundation for the eventual synthesis, placement and routing of full photonic circuits.

A key feature added in this release is the automatic generation of boundary port information for both generic and user-defined photonic building blocks. Users can make use of these boundary ports in their placement and routing algorithms to automatically adjust component placements and waveguide routing as circuit parameters are tweaked by designers or synthesis algorithms.

Waypoint-assisted Manhattan routing provide metal or waveguide routing in which all straight connectors run either horizontally or vertically, connected by corners. Instead of manually defining a series of bends and straights, waypoint-assisted routing allows one to simply define a few waypoints through which the routing must run. The connections between the waypoints are then automatically routed. Phase-aware waveguide routing enables PDK storage of effective index and group index as a function of the wavelength and the width and radius of a waveguide.
