PIC Week 2018: TowerJazz Silicon Photonics PDK and CML

PIC Week 2018: TowerJazz Silicon Photonics PDK and CML

TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, recently announced the first open Silicon Photonics manufacturing process (PH18MA) offered by a commercial foundry with an industry-leading design platform targeting optical networking and data center interconnect applications. TowerJazz and Lumerical have collaborated to develop the compact model library (CML) for this platform, providing customers with unmatched simulation capability using Lumerical’s photonic integrated circuit simulator, INTERCONNECT.

In this webinar, our guest speaker from TowerJazz – Dr. Samir Chaudhry (Director, Design Enablement), will present TowerJazz’s silicon photonics technology and PDK. In particular, we will have a short demo of the TowerJazz CML. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss with the experts from both Lumerical and TowerJazz.
