AIM Photonics PDK Version 2.5a has been released and is available now for use with Synopsys RSoft OptSim Circuit and PhoeniX OptoDesigner PIC design tools. Version 2.5a adds nine new components to support O-band wavelengths (1260nm to 1360nm) including OptoDesigner support for an O-band based mode generator function. Other PDK improvements include newly optimized silicon waveguides to reduce loss during optical routing when using C-band and L-band wavelengths. C-band performance parameters were also updated for six components based on wafer measurements. PDK version 2.5a enables integrated photonics design using O-band wavelengths and also improves circuit performance when using either C or L-band wavelengths. The new PDK can be accessed at http://www.aimphotonics.com/aim-photonics-pdk-access starting August 3rd, 2018.Back to overview.
