Pass Type: All Access Pass, Alumni All Access Pass
Track: 03. Integrating Photonics & Wireless in Electrical Design
Audience Level: Intermediate
Session Type: Tutorial
Description: Validated, unified Electronic/Photonic Design Automation (EPDA) tool flows are a key technology component to bring standardization and scalability to silicon photonics. In this tutorial, we introduce the first open commercial silicon photonic process and PDK-based design flow. Experts from the leading design tools will demonstrate how close integration between schematic capture, electronic-photonic co-simulation, and layout tools, together with electronic/photonic PDKs delivers silicon-proven designs, such as LiDAR. 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.
Takeaway: Attendees will gain an understanding of the first open commercial silicon photonic process and PDK-based design flow. They will also have the unique opportunity for hands on experience with the latest EPDA design tools, and the methodology to develop a LiDAR design.
