During the past few years, there has been a dramatic increase in the scale and complexity of silicon photonic circuits, which introduces many new design challenges and creates a need for efficient and standardized design flows. We have developed a complete design flow that combines mature electronic design automation (EDA) software with optical simulation software. This flow makes it possible to reliably design, simulate, layout and manufacture large-scale silicon photonic circuits in a unified environment. }, URL = {http://dx.doi.org/10.1117/12.2071958}, author = { Wang, Xu and Pond, James and Cone, Chris and Chrostowski, Lukas and Klein, Jackson and Flueckiger, Jonas and Liu, Amy and McGuire, Dylan } }
