An intensive course on electronic-photonic IC (EPIC) design methodology using the IHP design kit SG25H4EPIC
The aim of this course is to enable designers of high performance integrated circuits:
- to understand the design methodology for electronic-photonic ICs
- to gain insight into the design flow implemented for the IHP SG25H4EPIC technology
- Electronic-photonic design kit (overview & installation)
- Schematic & layout of a simple EPIC design
- Technology information and MPW tape-in procedure
The practical examples given are based on 0.25 µm SiGe:C photonic BiCMOS technology and Cadence 6.1.5.
Design steps will be practised on workstations.
