Paper Abstract

To design and package optoelectronic (OE) systems more effectively, computer-aided design (CAD) systems are needed in the engineering environment. The use of CAD systems for designing electronic computing systems is well accepted by the electronic community. CAD systems for engineering optical design are also widely used in the optics community. However, design automation of OE engineering requires more than the existing tools for system component design. Also required is research on OE design methodology and a complete set of tools. We explore a new area that will be important to OE system design: OE system CAD. We present an integrated CAD system for free-space optical interconnected optoelectronics that leverages on existing CAD technologies. The details of the system and the guidelines for developing compatible tools are described. Case studies of two OE CAD tools developed using these guidelines are also presented.
