VPI-Mentor eSeminar

December 2018

VPIphotonics and Mentor partner for eSeminar on topic:

Photonic IC design with Mentor and VPIphotonics: from layout to electronic-photonic co-simulation

VPI Design Suite integrated with Tanner L-Edit Photonics and Tanner S-Edit dramatically enhances both layout- and schematic-driven flows.
The automated link between VPI Design Suite and Tanner L-Edit Photonics provides a convenient way of simulating a designed circuit layout, while the link between VPIphotonics Design Suite and Tanner S-Edit provides the designer with an electronic/photonic design automation (EPDA) environment. This allows for simulation and optimization of the integrated circuits comprising both electrical and photonic sub-circuits.

News UNIQORN Project

October 2018


EU Quantum Flagship Project UNIQORN

advances the next generation of quantum communication systems

The multidisciplinary project UNIQORN will develop under the participation of VPIphotonics quantum technology for the mass market. Quantum communication systems, mostly found in research laboratories, will be squeezed into small and reliable photonic integrated circuits. By carefully laying out each element along the development chain from fabrication to application, the Horizon 2020 project will not only reduce size and cost, but will also bring improvements in terms of robustness and reproducibility.

Early bird discount on registration fees is applied until the 30th of September.

VPI-CST eSeminar

October 2018

VPIphotonics and CST partner for eSeminar on topic:

Design Optimization and Sensitivity Analysis of Photonic Integrated Circuits using Physical and Circuit-Level Simulations

This eSeminar focuses on two software packages, which combine advanced simulation of passive photonic, active optoelectronic and hybrid photonic integrated circuits and systems with highly accurate full-wave 3D photonic and multiphysics simulation.
We will demonstrate how using VPIphotonics Design Suite™ and CST Studio Suite® together enables engineers designing PICs to automate combined circuit level and full wave simulation. This allows the study of the effect of small variations in the components on the overall circuit, meaning that the engineer can increase yield and reliability by making the circuit resilient to such effects.

»eSeminar: 4 October, 2018 – 19:00 CEST (UTC +2), duration 60 min
