RIT professor Stefan Preble's MITx course  Photonic Integrated Circuits 1: Fabless Design of Photonic Integrated Circuits within the AIM Foundry Ecosystem.
Apr
9
to May 1

RIT professor Stefan Preble's MITx course Photonic Integrated Circuits 1: Fabless Design of Photonic Integrated Circuits within the AIM Foundry Ecosystem.

Photonic Integrated Circuits 1

A deep-dive into fabless photonics design: master industry software to model, simulate, layout, and error-check a photonic integrated circuit for high-tech applications; create a verified submission to the world-class AIM Photonics fabrication facility.

About this course

Photonics Integrated Circuits (PICs) are analogs to the computer microprocessor chip, poised to partner light-manipulating optical devices and transistor-based electronics for a vast array of modern applications in cloud computing, high-speed mobile wireless, smart sensing, augmented imaging, and quantum communications. PIC circuits create, guide, sort, and read information as signals of light, routed through a dizzying maze of hundreds of devices packed in an area about a millimeter on its side.

How can you design a circuit brimming with so much device density and interconnectedness, all by yourself? How can you do this design reliably, time and time again? How do you ensure your circuit is consistent with the design of others, so that you can both interpret each other’s chip architectures and applications?

Welcome to fabless photonics, the new paradigm for designing high-fidelity PICs.

This course introduces you to PIC design using a standardized Process Design Kit (PDK) library as your builders’ rulebook, and Electronic Photonic Design Automation (EPDA) software as your architecture tools. You’ll be guided through a step-by-step sequence giving you mastery to

  • model silicon photonic devices;

  • simulate a PIC;

  • layout the PIC chip; and

  • Design Rule Check (DRC) to revise layout into a final blueprint for PIC fabrication.
