Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT

A robust photonic integrated circuit (PIC) simulator, with computational evaluation of multimode, bidirectional, and multi-channel photonic devices.

 

Design and Simulation of PICs

  • Use INTERCONNECT to create and simulate photonic integrated circuits using its hierarchical schematic editor.
  • Frequency domain analysis, transient sample mode simulation, and transient block mode simulation are all included in INTERCONNECT.
  • With support for parameter sweeps and design optimization, the software comes with comprehensive visualization and data analysis capabilities.

PDA and EDA Interoperability

  • Use well-known EDA design tools and workflows to simulate and optimize your designs to shorten design cycles and increase reliability.
  • PDA employs a two-level strategy that combines proactive, high-level system and product robustness assessments with rule-based “drill-down” probing to automatically gather comprehensive design-related data.

Variant Annotation & Statistical Analysis Solutions

  • Use corner analysis to simulate how process variation affects the functionality of the circuit.
  • Assess circuit performance and yield using Monte Carlo analysis while taking process variability into consideration.

PIC Element Libraries

  • INTERCONNECT has a vast photonic integrated circuit (PIC) library. The library includes passive and active optoelectrical building components allowing users to customize their simulations.

CML Development and Dissemination

  • INTERCONNECT offers an infrastructure that facilitates the creation and distribution of compact model libraries (CMLs) for PIC simulation and design, in addition to Ansys Lumerical’s device level tools.
