Simulate, Validate, Innovate the World of Photonics!

VPIphotonics @ OFC – 24 - 28 March 2024, San Diego, USA

Join VPIphotonics at Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) 2024, booth #3611, to witness the latest innovations in photonics simulation and design! Here you will get to see demonstrations addressing new 1.6T & 800G standards and you will learn how Photonic Integrated Circuit (PIC) designs can be integrated seamlessly with a full transmission system simulation. Explore our novel approaches for PIC simulation, now enhanced with custom Photonic Design Kit (PDK) creation capabilities and extended support for lithium niobate materials.

Experience the latest advancements in Free-Space Optical Communication (FSOC) systems, including cutting-edge simulations for intersatellite links and atmospheric turbulence challenges in up/downlink scenarios. Discover powerful solutions for simulating kilowatt-level fiber lasers, and see first-hand our solutions for electrical-optical co-design, quantum communications, and machine learning for enhanced equalization.

Our Contribution to Conference Program – Oral Presentation:

"A Novel Machine Learning-based Equalizer
for a Downstream 100G PAM-4 PON"

27 Mar, 8:00 AM - 8:15 AM PST
Session: W1F – Short Reach Transmission, Room 6F

Abstract: A frequency-calibrated SCINet (FC-SCINet) equalizer is proposed for downstream 100G PON with 28.7 dB path loss. At 5 km, FC-SCINet improves the BER by 88.87% compared to FFE and a 3-layer DNN with 10.57% lower complexity.
