Aspic 3 available now!
Big step forward for photonic circuit design with this new version of Aspic, the first circuit simulator for photonics. This new and improved version is including a filter synthesis toolbox and backscatter modelling. The filter synthesis toolbox is a set of routines oriented to help the user in the design of several optical filter topologies. Further an accurate and verified model for distributed backscatter generated by waveguide sidewall roughness is now included. Seamless photonic integrated circuit design is provided by the link to MaskEngineer to generate on-spec mask files. Design Kits for various foundries are now available to kick-start your photonics activities.
