Distributing the CML
Photonic integrated circuit simulation with CMLs
Learn how circuit designers use CMLs to simulate photonic integrated circuits.
Compact model libraries generated by CML Compiler are installed in INTERCONNECT. The circuit designer leverages all the capabilities of INTERCONNECT for photonic circuit simulation. This library can also be used for INTERCONNECT-Spectre EPDA co-simulation for electrical and photonic simulations.
Verilog-A CML (in Cadence Virtuoso)
Verilog-A CMLs generated by CML Compiler can be used in EPDA enabled Cadence Virtuoso for electrical and optical simulations.
- Installing the Verilog-A Virtuoso Library
- Running Verilog-A simulations
- Manual Library and CDF Setup in Virtuoso (Optional)
