Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT simulates photonic integrated circuits in the time and frequency domains.
INTERCONNECT is Ansys Lumerical's Photonic Integrated Circuit Simulator
INTERCONNECT, Lumerical’s photonic integrated circuit simulator, verifies multimode, bidirectional, and multi-channel PICs. Creating your project in our hierarchical schematic editor, you can use our extensive library of primitive elements, as well as foundry-specific PDK elements, to perform analysis in the time or frequency domain.
Lumerical INTERCONNECT includes a broad set of features and workflows with an extensive library of primitive elements, as well as foundry-specific PDK elements.
The 2021 R2 release delivers improvements to Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT to better support PDK development:
Ansys FEEM now includes support for diagonal anisotropy.
Export S-parameters in Touchstone format from Ansys Lumerical FDTD and Ansys Lumerical MODE component simulations and then import into Lumerical INTERCONNECT.
Experience a depth of features and workflow for photonic integrated circuit simulation with Lumerical INTERCONNECT. Available workflows accelerate design time and improve manufacturing outcomes. INTERCONNECT contains an extensive library of passive and active building blocks and supports many foundry PDKs with calibrated compact models.
Perform photonic integrated circuit simulations with analyses in the time and frequency domain.
With its hierarchical schematic editor, use INTERCONNECT to design and simulate photonic integrated circuits. INTERCONNECT includes frequency domain analysis, transient sample mode simulation, and transient block mode simulation. It includes sophisticated visualization and data analysis tools with support for parameter sweeps and design optimization.
Simulate and optimize your designs with familiar EDA design tools and workflows to accelerate design time and improve reliability.
Perform corner analysis to model the effects of process variation on circuit performance. Execute Monte Carlo analysis to assess circuit performance and yield by accounting for process variations
INTERCONNECT contains an extensive standard library of passive and active optoelectronic building blocks, along with supplementary elements that enable simulations and analyze results. It includes two library extensions:
INTERCONNECT, along with Ansys Lumerical's device level tools, provides an infrastructure that supports the development and distribution of compact model libraries (CMLs) for PIC simulation and design. Typically, a CML is built upon a combination of experimentally measured data and accurate component-level simulation results using Lumerical’s device-level photonics tools.
