Advancing silicon photonics verification innovation

March 8, 2022
EDA companies have recognized that there is no need to invent new tools, or even reinvent the tools and processes already in place for EIC verification.

The growing market for silicon photonic integrated circuits has led to the need for reliable, automated physical and manufacturing verification process flows that address the unique physical characteristics of silicon pho-tonics designs. By expanding and adapting the use of established physical verification and optimization functionality, EDA companies have enabled their tools to accommodate the new components and design concepts of silicon photonics designs, and provided photonics designers with an automated and standardized path to tapeout.
