We will present the latest electronic-photonic design automation (EPDA) solutions jointly developed by Ansys Lumerical and Cadence. We will use a silicon photonic ring-based wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) system to demonstrate the overall design flow that covers custom component design, compact model creation, circuit simulation, layout implementation, and electronic-photonic co-design.
Xu Wang leads the Lumerical Solutions Group at Ansys. He has been focusing on the design and simulation solutions for photonics integrated circuits (PICs). He also leads Lumerical's ecosystem partnerships with foundries, EDA, and strategic customers. He received his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia.
