DEVICE Multiphysics Simulation Suite

Lumerical’s component design products use multiphysics-style simulation capabilities and workflows to model optical, electrical and thermal effects at the physical level. Learn about the capabilities of each tool:



SYSTEM Circuit Simulation Suite

Lumerical’s system-level products includes all the tools needed to simulate photonics circuits and to generate compact libraries. INTERCONNECT simulates and optimizes the performance of photonic integrated circuits. In addition to an extensive list of pre-defined elements offered by INTERCONNECT, additional elements are available with the System Element Library and the Laser Element Library. CML Compiler automates the creation, maintenance and QA testing of INTERCONNECT and Verilog-A photonic compact libraries (CMLs).  CML encryption is available via the CML Publisher+ add-on.



Interoperability Products

Lumerical products have been designed to work in conjunction with popular electronic design automation (EDA) tools. In addition, a number of foundry compact model libraries (CMLs) are available for INTERCONNECT that are calibrated against the manufacturing process offered by several semiconductor foundries. The Automation API offers Python-driven interoperability enabling Lumerical tools to interact with third-party applications and a rich set of open-source content such as the Adjoint Method for Inverse Design.
