IPKISS Design Environment

The IPKISS design environment is a complete platform for Integrated Photonics Design. Through EUROPRACTICE the following modules are available:

IPKISS Photonics Design Platform

IPKISS is a Python 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 component simulation and circuit simulation. IPKISS raises the integrity of your design flow, via:

Key Features:

Python User Interface Layout Photonics Components Library Physical Component Simulation Circuit/System Simulation Framework

Link for Siemens EDA

The Link for Siemens EDA plugs into the Luceda Photonics Design Platform and enables you to export parametric cells to the GUI of L-Edit and L-Edit Photonics by Siemens EDA.

Specialized photonic components require a scripted approach with version and quality control to handle the complexity and the need for customization. These specialized components are designed within a component library built on top of a PDK technology.

IPKISS is well-suited for the design of specialized components and library IP management. It provides the quality backbone of IP generation. Export your IPKISS libraries to OpenAccess and deploy them in L-Edit Photonics, where you finalize your designs through optical and electrical routing, final design assembly, mask preparation and design verification.
