CompoundTek, Mentor and Lumerical present their seamless integrated design flow that equips you with what you need for your next real-world tape-out.

CompoundTek will introduce its world-class foundry services and silicon photonics PDK featuring a full suite of active and passive devices. Mentor and Lumerical will then demonstrate the PDK centered design flow, by taking a PAM-4 circuit from layout to simulation. Mentor will demonstrate its photonics implementation solutions including Tanner L-Edit Photonics and LightSuite Photonic Compiler. Lumerical will show how you can launch the PAM-4 circuit simulation in INTERCONNECT directly from Tanner L-Edit Photonics. The circuit is reproduced in INTERCONNECT with the CompoundTek compact model library (CML) and can be analyzed with both the frequency and time-domain simulations. Finally, physical verification of the circuit is demonstrated with Calibre DRC.
