Design your photonic integrated circuit in a layout centric flow. The designer can implement their design using either a drag and drop or a script-driven methodology. Both of those are in the same full custom IC design layout editor that drives the physical verification and tape-out processes.
L-Edit Photonics enables the fast creation of a photonic design using a drag and drop methodology in an IC layout editor, without having to write a single line of code. Once the design is completed, a netlist can be extracted for photonic simulation.
