VPItoolkit™ PDK LioniX

VPItoolkit PDK LioniX is a pluggable toolkit which extends VPIcomponentMaker Photonic Circuits by adding the support of the TriPleX™ integrated photonics PDK for the Multi-Project Wafer runs offered by LioniX International BV.


It enables the rapid design of TriPleX-based CMOS-compatible monolithically integrated passive and thermally tunable photonic circuits for their subsequent fabrication at the LioniX International BV foundry.
