See Lumerical’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. James Pond, present “Scalable PIC design: increasing yield of components, circuits, and systems

Tuesday, March 26 at 14:20Tremendous progress has been made in recent years in PIC design and manufacturing. Nonetheless, manufacturing variations and the inevitable impact on yield remains a significant challenge. Active tuning can sometimes be a solution, but the necessary system complexity and power budgets can be prohibitive. We discuss design methods to maximize yield that account for a knowledge of design variations from specific foundry processes. These methods include inverse design approaches at the component level to large scale statistical simulation of circuits using calibrated compact models.
