Synopsys’ OptoCompiler Accelerates Photonic IC Product Development

11th November 2020

In September 2020, Synopsys launched the OptoCompiler platform for photonic integrated circuit (PIC) design. OptoCompiler is the industry’s first unified electronic and photonic design platform that combines mature photonic technology with Synopsys’ industry-proven electronic design tools to enable engineers to produce and verify complex PIC designs quickly and accurately.
OptoCompiler highlights:
–    Seamlessly integrates schematic entry, layout, simulation and DRC/LVS
–    Drives Synopsys’ photonic circuit and system simulation tools: OptSim Circuit and OptSim, as well as electrical simulation tools: FineSim, CustomSim, and HSPICE
–    Interfaces with the industry-leading process and device tools: Sentaurus TCAD and RSoft Photonic Device Tools
