Introduction to Silicon Photonics Systems and Their Modeling with XMODEL

November 9, 2020    13:40 PM – 15:10 PM

Silicon photonics systems integrate photonic components such as optical waveguides, coupler, resonator, etc. along with electronic components on the same silicon chip to realize high-bandwidth, high-density, and low-power communication. This tutorial provides an overview on common photonic devices such as microring modulator, Mach-Zehnder modulator, electro-absorption modulator, etc, and demonstrates how to model various wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) systems tightly interacting with analog or digital electronic components and simulate them efficiently in SystemVerilog/XMODEL.
