Get Started

In this course, you will learn how to build and publish a custom compact model library (CML). You will also learn about the basics of working with published libraries. By the end of this course, you will be able to:
• Build and publish a Custom Library
• Identify differences between the Custom library and Design kit
• Describe different options for CML distributions

Recommended Courses

In this course, you will learn about the importance of circuit solvers in photonic integrated circuit (PIC) design and about the use of Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT in photonic circuit simulation.
By the end of this section, you will be able to:
• Describe the role of circuit solvers in the industry
• Describe the basic capabilities of INTERCONNECT
• List some application areas of INTERCONNECT

This course covers the basic workflow for Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT simulations. You will go through a hands-on, step-by-step example showing how to set up, run and analyze results for a double bus ring resonator. By the end of this course, you will be able to:
• Explain the basic workflow for INTERCONNECT simulations
• Identify schematic editor features
• Set up basic frequency domain INTERCONNECT simulations with optical components
• Plot results from Visualizer
• Extract results to script

This course covers how and when to perform frequency-domain simulations in Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT. It also provides background information on the scattering analysis algorithm used by the solver. By the end of this course, you will be able to:
• List examples of when the frequency domain solver can be used
• Explain the basic principle of how scattering matrices can be used to solve for the frequency domain transmission
• Set up frequency-domain simulations with both optical and electrical components
