A*STAR IME and Lumerical accelerate silicon photonics design

The photonics foundry at A*STAR’s Institute of Microelectronics (IME) has partnered with Lumerical Solutions, a provider of photonic design software, to develop a calibrated compact model library (CML) for IME’s silicon photonics platform and process design kit (PDK).

IME offers a 25G/s-capable silicon photonics platform and PDK, which are built on validated processes and devices. The foundry service enables PIC designers to build reliable devices with state-of-the-art performance, and achieve prototyping and product manufacturing with ease.
