With the applications space for integrated photonics expanding into traditional electronics areas, existing EDA and photonics design automation design methodologies must merge to provide the most efficient design flow.

As integrated photonics presents physical and analytical challenges that require unique methods not available in traditional electronic IC design tools, these need to be addressed. PhoeniX Software’s OptoDesigner Photonic IC phoenixdesign platform, with native curvilinear and all angle layout capabilities, can be used either stand-alone for photonic IC design or closely interfaced with EDA solutions to support the design of complex photonic-electronic ICs within an integrated environment.
