Please contact Dr.-Ing. Christian Wittke




An intensive course on electronic-photonic IC (EPIC) design methodology using the IHP design kit


Day 1   IHP Mixed signal flow

  • Introduction to tutorial and IHP silicon photonic MPW service
  • Electronic-photonic design kit (overview & installation)
  • EPIC design example from schematic to layout (hands-on)
  • Luceda EDA Solution for photonic design
  • Parametric layout design using IPKISS (hands-on)

Day 2   IHP Mixed signal flow

  • Parametric layout design using IPKISS (hands-on)
  • Design kit documentation and support
  • Best practices for electronic-photonic IC design
  • Electro-photonic design finalization with Tanner EDA and IPKISS design flow (hands-on)
  • Q&A

Prerequisites:  Course participants should be familiar with circuit design. Familiarity with IPKISS or Tanner EDA design tools would be helpful.
