The circuit simulator that is included in IPKISS. It is capable of simulating passive and active photonic circuits based on the description of a schematic and a description of the model of each basic circuit element.


The mode solver that is included in IPKISS.

Process Flow

To add process information from a foundry into the PDK, you can define a process flow. This process flow definition will describe how layout elements on layers can be turned into a three dimensional representation. Check our documentation for details.


Within IPKISS, a hierarchical tree of settings which describe a fabrication technology. Provides default values for many IPKISS functions and PCell properties. The root of this tree is the TECH object. Each PDK defines a technology.
