OptSim Circuit is an extension of Synopsys’ award-winning fiber optic systems modeling tool, OptSim. It delivers a single framework, engine and sets of models to study systems ranging from long-haul optical communication systems to sub-micron photonic circuits. This enables you to evaluate system-level performance in OptSim of a photonic integrated circuit (PIC) that is designed in OptSim Circuit. It is an ideal platform to study optical systems and photonic circuits that operate with coupling and feedback of different optical and electrical signal paths.
OptSim Circuit is ideally suited for computer-aided design of PIC applications and bidirectional systems, including but not limited to:
- Single- and multi-stage bidirectional PICs
- Integrated transceivers
- Integrated network subassemblies and switching fabrics
- Microwave photonics
- Optical interconnects
- Sensing technologies, including interferometric fiber optic gyroscopes
