The BrightAWG design module is one from a series of BrightModules. The BrightAWG generates foundry compatible de-multiplex and filtering building blocks. Beginner or expert, in minutes you design and simulate AWG (arrayed waveguide gratings) layouts based on optical specifications, e.g. wavelength and channel spacing. Tested on 10+ foundries in InP and many other technologies. Highly customizable across foundries and processes. Examples of other modules are BrightMMI, BrightTaper and BrightInterconnect.

tuesmartx PDK extension

This PDK contains TU/e extension building blocks for SMART Photonics. Such building blocks are used in the same way as regular building blocks from the foundry. Examples of building blocks provided by tuesmartx are MMI couplers with different splitting ratios, (tunable) lasers and arrayed waveguide gratings. It requires the Nazca (Gen2) MPW PDK from SMART Photonics as provided by Bright photonics. The extension is free of charge for MPW use.
