Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT, a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) simulator, explores and evaluates multimode, bidirectional, and multi-channel photonic device circuits and components.
Engineer’s can use INTERCONNECT’s extensive library of primitive elements and foundry-specific PDK (Process Development Kit) elements when creating projects in the hierarchical schematic editor to conduct statistical analysis in the time or frequency domain.
Functionality and practical industrial applications
Designers can model interacting optical, electrical, and thermal effects thanks to tools that seamlessly integrate device and system level functionality. A variety of processes that combine device multiphysics and photonic circuit simulation with external design automation and productivity tools are made possible by flexible interoperability between products.
