Aspic™ is a fast and accurate simulator for the analysis, the modeling and the design of photonics integrated circuits.

In Aspic™, circuits are built as a collection of building blocks that do not require the description at physical level. Its model-based approach allows a high abstraction level, focusing on circuit functionality and performance.

Arbitrary large circuits are conceived, designed, analyzed and translated in mask layouts with few clicks.


What Aspic™ can do:

  • calculate the spectral behavior of simple devices and complete circuits
  • analyze arbitrarily large optical circuits including planar and hybrid building blocks
  • synthesize complex circuits
  • perform virtual experiments and “what if” analysis
  • export circuits for mask layout generation
  • compare measurements and simulations for parameter extraction
  • study the impact of technological tolerances and much more …
