Lumerical's design tools accurately simulate photonic components, circuits and systems
SYSTEM Suite for Photonic Integrated Circuit Simulation
INTERCONNECT Photonic Integrated Circuit Simulator
DEVICE Suite for Photonic Multiphysics Simulation
FDTD 3D Electromagnetic Simulator
Lumerical’s DEVICE Suite, SYSTEM Suite, and Interoperability work together seamlessly allowing designers to model the most challenging problems in photonics that include interacting optical, electrical, and thermal effects. Flexible interoperability between suites enables a variety of workflows that combine component-level multiphysics and system-level circuit simulation with third-party design automation and productivity tools. Interoperability further provides Python-based automation support via the Automation API and compact-library support for the industry’s leading photonics foundries.
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:
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.
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.
