Tutorial on IHP SG25H4EPIC Technology for Electronic-Photonic ICs

Register: Tutorial on IHP SG25H4EPIC Technology for Electronic-Photonic ICs, June 13 - 14, 2017, IHP innovations for high perfomances in Frankfurt (Oder)

You are invited to attend the Tutorial on IHP SG25H4EPIC Technology for Electronic-Photonic ICs
June 13 - 14, 2017, from 10 am to 5 pm with 3 pm finish on the final day, at IHP, Im Technologiepark 25, 15236 Frankfurt (Oder), Germany
The aim of this course is to enable designers of high performance integrated circuits to understand the design methodology for Electronic-Photonic ICs and gain insight into the design flow implemented for the IHP SG25H4EPIC technology. The practical examples given are based on 0.25 µm SiGe:C photonic BiCMOS technology and Cadence 6.1.5 design steps will be practised on workstations. Course contents:
•    Electro-photonic design kit (overview & installation)
•    Schematic & Layout of a simple EPIC design
•    Technology information and MPW tape-in procedure.

The course schedule:
Tuesday, June 13: IHP Mixed signal flow
•    Opening remarks
•    Electronic-photonic design kit (overview and installation hands-on)
•    Design Kit documentation
•    Parametric layout of an optical DBPSK receiver with IPKISS (notebook on layout generation with Python scripts in IPKISS)
•    Simple EPIC design example from schematic to layout (hands-on)

Wednesday, June 14: IHP Mixed signal flow
•    MPW service and tape-in procedure
•    Usage of an existing 25 Gbps TIA design IP (on abstract level) in an EPIC design flow (hands-on)
•    Design Kit support
