In this webinar, Siemens EDA, CompoundTek, and Ansys come together to present a streamlined PDK-driven workflow for photonic design bolstered by statistical yield analysis. The integrated flow is a key enabler for photonic integrated circuit (PDK) design allowing you to easily tackle the many rapidly advancing applications in photonics such as datacom, RF, sensing, AR/VR, automotive, and medical. The addition of statistical yield analysis allows you to simulate manufacturing variability leading to better yield, a reduced need for costly prototype iterations, reduced manufacturing risk, and ultimately improved return on investment.

Siemens and Ansys together offer a photonic flow based on the industry-standard Tanner analog/mixed-signal design environment and Ansys Lumerical’s INTERCONNECT to support the seamless integration between layout and photonic circuit simulation. Siemens’ Tanner L-Edit Photonics provides the layout capabilities, Siemens’ Calibre provides a verification platform for design rule checking, and Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT provides circuit-level photonic simulation.

CompoundTek’s recently released PDK v2.0 for Siemens L-Edit offers a full suite of active and passive devices with 39 new components. PDK v2.0 includes a compact model library (CML) for Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT that is now equipped with statistical models.

Whether you are a PDK designer or an end-product PIC designer, this webinar will provide you with a working knowledge of the Siemens, CompoundTek, Ansys flow and the required tools to get you started. The webinar begins with motivation and overview for the flow and PDK, followed by tool demonstrations of Siemens Tanner L-Edit, Siemans Calibre, and Ansys Lumerical’s INTERCONNECT. An example of photonic integrated circuit with yield analysis will be highlighted.
