This InP design kit contains the building blocks for fabrication runs offered by SMART Photonics.
SMART Photonics is the first foundry to commercially offer a generic process for production of InP based photonic integrated circuits. The SMART Photonics PDK consists of a comprehensive building block library, consisting of active and passive devices for InP based photonic integration. The PDK is evolved from the COBRA PDK that has been extensively tested by many universities, research institutes and industrial partners in various Multi Project Wafer (MPW) runs over the past years.
This PDK is a plug-in library for PhoeniX Software solutions and in addition to the photonic elements from the standard PhoeniX Software library, the PDK contains technology specific information like mask layer names, design rules, validated building blocks, die sizes and GDS file settings.
The PDK contents are listed below [v1.0.0, 13 November 2017]:
MPW-runs are planned every 3 months. Interested users are requested to contact SMART Photonics or JePPIX (firstname.lastname@example.org, www.jeppix.eu), who is coordinating the access to InP MPW services. Training on design using the PhoeniX Software and this PDK is performed on a regular basis.
Many of our solutions come with a free trial, including interactive webdemonstrations. Read more.
