Not long ago there was a question: which PIC technology platform would win the photonics race: InP or SoI? But, what about SiN, glass, or polymer? It has become clear that each platform offers certain advantages in performance, size and price, and no winner takes it all. For many applications the way forward is actually combining the various PIC technologies in hybrid PIC designs. In order to design such hybrid pics it is pivotal to seamlessly combine two or more PDKs in a single PIC design flow. This presentation shows how Nazca Design lets you do just that.
With Bright Photonics and Nazca Design Ronald helps PIC developers and designers to bring photonical ideas to reality.
