Lumerical Solutions, Inc., a global provider of photonic design software, launches build 527 of 2015b release is a products FDTD Solutions 8.12, MODE Solutions 7.6, DEVICE 4.6 and INTERCONNECT 5.0.
New photonic component and integrated circuit design and analysis features in the 2015b release include:
- Improved graphene modeling in FDTD Solutions and MODE Solutions uses a surface conductivity model combined with a new 2D surface primitive to dramatically reduce simulation time and improve predictive capabilities
- A one-dimensional traveling wave laser model in INTERCONNECT provides a self-consistent framework to account for the complex interactions of semiconductor lasers tightly integrated with photonic integrated circuits
- New model library management features in INTERCONNECT allow for the secure generation and sharing of a compact model library which contains advanced frequency- and time-domain photonic circuit models
- The dataset builder in DEVICE, FDTD Solutions and MODE Solutions allows designers to define complex structures with spatially-varying material properties, including doping profiles, generated by other software tools, modeling frameworks, and TCAD process simulators
Along with key new features for photonics designers, the 2015b release builds on the photonic integrated circuit design features developed with PhoeniX Software’s OptoDesigner. Advances in the workflow between INTERCONNECT and OptoDesigner support back annotation and layout versus schematic (LVS) verification of post layout, packaging ready designs. The interface enables a flexible schematic driven or layout driven design methodology and, along with accurate coordination of schematic and physical layouts through all stages of design from concept to final tapeout, allows designers to improve design reliability and yield.
Since its inception in 2003, Lumerical has pioneered breakthrough simulation technologies that help bring new product concepts to life. Our photonic design tools are licensed in nearly 50 countries around the world by the world’s most innovative organizations, including 7 of the top 10 companies in the S&P 1200 Global IT Index and 44 of the top 50 research universities according to the Times Higher Education rankings.
