Software Interfaces

Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute
VPIphotonics teams up with the Photonic Networks and Systems department of Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute to provide lab-proven electronic Digital Signal Processing algorithms for Coherent Optical Transmission Systems as pluggable toolkit.


Keysight Technologies
VPIphotonics products allow in simulations to run the Advanced Design System (ADS). The built-in ADS_Interface module enables seamless modeling of optical communications systems including detailed electrical and electronic circuit models.

Cosimulation features in VPIphotonics products support live interaction between models built in Matlab code and all optical and electrical signal models. Extensive examples and manuals are provided.


PhoeniX Software
VPIphotonics introduces the ability to export a circuit-level design from VPIcomponentMaker Photonic Circuits directly to OptoDesigner by PhoeniX Software including automatic generation of corresponding mask layout.

Lab Equipment Interfaces
