CompoundTek’s Technology & Program Manager, David Ngo and Ansys’ Lead R&D Engineer Federico Duque Gomez will share industry insights and their thoughts on how a manufacturable Silicon photonics process design kit (PDK) offering is critical to a product company, right from prototyping to mass manufacturing in foundry. 

As a leading global Silicon photonics foundry provider, CompoundTek has been working closely with Electronics-Photonics Design Automation (EPDA) vendors including Cadence and Ansys-Lumerical to mature PDK to mainstream Si CMOS standard.

During this presentation, David and Federico will share an example of customized CWDM wavelength vertical grating couplers to meet O-band CWDM commercial customers requirement. 

The Photonic Inverse Design allows CompoundTek to enhance Silicon photonics PDK offerings and create manufacturable designs with minimum feature size enforcement in Ansys Lumerical shape and topology optimization, layout with Cadence EPDA software, silicon photonics validated in CompoundTek’s Si photonics foundry service  with fabrication, on-wafer 8”/12” agnostic testing hub measurement with commercialization of its new on-wafer wafer edge coupling technology.
