Paper Abstract

The paper describes a novel approach to photonic electronic design automation (PEDA) based on the commercial design suite Laytools for circuit and physical layout design and simulation. The goal of this work is the integration of an electronic-photonic design flow into an existing electronic design automation (EDA) tool. Contrary to other solutions, with this approach, it is possible to minimize the required interfaces to other third party tools. In addition to existing electronic device models, photonic components are described with behavioral models. The mask layout has been extended to the needs of the electronic photonic integrated circuit (ePIC) designer and the verification flow was adapted to the photonic structures.
