Photonic layout automation that automatically routes both the photonic waveguides and electrical nets in minutes, not days. The resulting design is DRC clean by Calibre.
Use automation to quickly create a photonic layout that is correct by Calibre. Both the optical waveguides and electrical interconnect are automatically routed using different engines. Multiple design methodologies are supported including: Python script and schematic driven.
<ul><li><p>LightSuite is fast, a 16 by 16 switch layout created in under an hour (right)</p></li><li><p>Create multiple “what if” layouts in less time to do one manually</br></p></li><li><p>Photonic PDKs are available from multiple foundries</br></p></li><li><p>LightSuite Photonic Compiler is built on standards.
