VPI Design Suite offers an interface that can be used within Keysight Technologies' PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) to simulate and optimize design parameters both in electrical and optical domains, eliminating key barriers to developing high performance hardware products.
Utilizing dynamic communication and seamless data transfer between the design tools, the solution can predict the data link performance and be used to understand how electrical design choices will interplay with optical design choices to deliver a reliable system design.
Industry first integrated Electrical-Optical-Electrical workflow
Analyze an entire link from electrical to optical back to electrical passing through different domains
Enables electrical, optical, and system engineers to observe system's performance variation with varying optical and electrical design parameters
Enables electrical and system engineers to simulate electrical designs in a system for a given BER target
Design next-generation transceivers for 400G, 800G, 1.6T and beyond
Simulate the electrical design for a transceiver given a BER target for the entire system
Analyze full link eye diagram metrics such as BER and TDECQ
Compare modulation formats such as NRZ, PAM-4 and 16QAM
Compare parallelization methods such as FDM, WDM and SDM
Study the impact of electrical optical bandwidth on full link BER
Characterize transceiver performance while varying optical parameters such as fiber length and laser power
Validate photonic integrated circuit (PIC) models at the system-level in the full E-O-E link
