VPItransmissionMaker™ / VPIcomponentMaker™

VPIphotonics is offering training seminars on Photonic Design Automation for core and metro WDM systems, optical access networks, doped-fiber amplifiers and lasers as well as active devices and circuits. Experts in the field of photonic modeling lead guided tours, provide lectures on various application topics, and are available for questions and support during individual lab exercises. The seminar outline can be customized.

    Design topics include:

  • Graphical User Interface features

  • Overview of signal models and simulation techniques

  • Parameter sweeps and optimizations

  • Visualization and post-processing of simulation results

  • Scripted simulations and automated system design
