Photonic ToolkitVPIphotonics has announced the VPItoolkit PDK SMART v1.4, an updated VPItoolkit supporting the SMART Photonics Process Design Kit (PDK), which seamlessly integrates Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) simulation and automated mask layout extraction.

The VPItoolkit PDK SMART v1.4 constitutes a library extension to VPIcomponentMaker Photonic Circuits, which is the professional simulation and design environment for large-scale PICs with a mix of photonic, electrical, and optoelectronic devices. The new toolkit version broadens the selection of available building blocks with designer-defined models and layouts, making a step toward functional photonic design automation. The free and open-source Nazca Design framework is now fully supported for the generation of verified PICs layouts to be submitted and processed in terms of Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) runs on SMART Photonics’ Indium Phosphide technology platform.

With the new SMART PDK toolkit, designers are able to construct their own custom building blocks, effectively expanding the foundry PDK to fit individual needs.
