Photonic integrated circuits are rapidly advancing in several applications, such as datacom and telecom, virtual reality, sensors, automotive and medical applications. Validated, unified Electronic/Photonic Design Automation (EPDA) tool flows are key to bringing standardization and scalability to silicon photonics, including implementating 5G and WiGig. In this tutorial, we introduce a PDK-based design flow enabling RF designs for 5G and WiGig. Experts from leading EDA and photonics design tools vendors will demonstrate how close integration between schematic capture, electronic-photonic co-simulation, and layout tools, together with electronic/photonic PDKs delivers silicon-proven 5G designs. Attendees will learn about EPDA co-design and co-simulation, as well as photonic-specific compact model libraries (CMLs). Attendees will get hands-on experience with the latest EPDA design tools and foundry PDK.
