Home / Projects / Luceda Photonics: SIMULATION AND LAYOUT

IPKISS.flow is a scripting environment that covers the complete photonic IC design flow up to measurement feedback for true component validation. The components rely on a single, centrally defined model for a smooth transition between the different design stages such as layout and circuit simulation This makes the design flow robust -“What you layout is what you calculate”-, will reduce design errors and will save considerable design time.

Main features of IPKISS.flow

  • Complete design framework: component layout, component simulation, circuit layout and circuit simulation

  • State of the art specialised validated component library: adaptable to different fab technologies, leveraging on years of design experience

  • Growing number of commercial and re- search PDKs

  • Versatile Python scripting for easy integration and customisation permitting the integration of existing third-party and proprietary tools within your organisation

  • Centralised data management: robust, time saving and error reducing

  • Validated with over 400 designs

  • Commercial level support
