Agenda

Overview:  

An intensive course on Electronic-Photonic IC (EPIC) design methodology using the IHP Design Kit.

 
Details:  

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 SG25H5_EPIC technology. The practical examples given are based on 0.25 µm SiGe:C photonic BiCMOS technology, Cadence, IPKISS and Tanner EDA, design steps will be practised on workstations.

Course contents:

  • Electronic-photonic design kit (overview & installation)
  • Schematic & layout of a simple EPIC design
  • Technology information and MPW tape-in procedure

The course schedule will contain the following topics and will be given at a later date:

  • Introduction to tutorial and IHP silicon photonic MPW service
  • Electronic-photonic design kit
  • EPIC design example from schematic to layout (hands-on)
  • Luceda EDA Solution for photonic design
  • Electronic-photonic IC design flow using Tanner EDA
  • 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 (demo)
