Silicon Photonics: Past, Present and Future

Optoelectronic industry designers have traditionally used discrete optical devices for transceiver designs. The process requires manual integration of discrete free-space optical components such as lasers, modulator, photo detectors, isolators, MUX/DE-MUX, lenses in the form of optical gold box sub-assemblies such as transmit optical sub-assembly (TOSA).

CWS launches SiPEX, a productivity tool for RF SOI designs

Coupling Wave Solutions S.A. (CWS), a leader in solutions for interference analysis in complex chip designs incorporating RF and analog blocks, announced the availability of a new productivity tool called SiPEX. SiPEX models the silicon substrate on insulators much faster than any other tools in its class and allows radio frequency (RF) silicon-on-insulator (SOI) designers to increase the number of design iterations—including spice simulation—up to 10 times in the same time frame.
