Addressing The Challenges Of Photonic IC Design Via An Integrated Electronic/Photonic Design Automation Environment

Photonics—the science and technology of generating, controlling, and detecting light—is transitioning quickly into mainstream electronic designs. Photonic IC (PIC) design does, however, come with some unique challenges in areas including layout, error checking, and circuit modeling. While electronic designers would have expertise in using a traditional electronic design automation (EDA) flo... » read more
