Microelectronics Support Centre  



In this training course hosted by PhoeniX Software and supported by partners, you will get an overview of the latest status of the integrated photonics eco-system for the three major photonics technologies: InP, silicon photonics and TriPleX (SiN). This overview will include the available design tools today and the importance of considering test and packaging in an early stage. The unique combination of lectures and hands-on training exercises will teach you how to perform circuit simulations, including fabrication tolerances, how to use a design library (PDK) for mask layout and how to set-up your own libraries in a structured way. OptoDesigner, our PIC design suite and ASPIC, photonic circuit simulator, will be used for this purpose.

When: 20-24 February 2017
Where: Conference Hotel Drienerburght, Enschede, the Netherlands
Participation fee: Free for project partners and customers with a maintenance subscription and/or rental license.
