The IPKISS Design Framework
IPKISS.flow is a scripting environment enabling a complete photonic IC design flow, from component definition, interconnection, and layout; via physical and circuit simulation; to true design validation, by real measurement feedback.
Consistent transitions between the stages of the design process are ensured, since the views used at each phase are bound to a single, centrally-defined component model. As a consequence of this tight coupling between a component's parameterized layout and corresponding simulation view, rigorous agreement between designs and fabricated ICs can be expected.
Raises the integrity of your design flow
- Fully parametric powerful Python scripting
- From netlist to layout in the same component
- Circuit simulation & validation by measurement
- Customizable to internal design methodology
IPKISS comes with PICAZZO, a large library of predefined parametric components. While mainly developed for silicon photonics, the components are generic and can be applied to any planar photonic integration technology. Components include parametric grating couplers, Mach-Zehnder interferometers, (multi-)ring resonators and (optionally) advanced wavelength filters such as arrayed waveguide gratings (AWGs) and echelle gratings.
