Workshop on integrated circuit design
Abstract: The workshop will provide a platform for enhancing knowledge in Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) design using Lumerical INTERCONNECT for new and existing users. INTERCONNECT is a time and frequency domain mixed-signal photonic circuit simulation engine similiar to SPICE, that is specially designed to address effects prevalent in integrated photonics. A hierarchical schematic design environment enables rapid development of complex integrated photonics systems comprised of tens to thousands of elements. Test bench analysis in the frequency and time domain, parameter sweeps, statistical analysis and compact model design and distribution will be taught, using a variety of application examples.
