Get Started

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

This course is an introduction to time-domain simulations with Ansys Lumerical INTERCONNECT. It describes when to use each of the two signal processing approaches: ample Mode and Block Mode. It provides basic information on the processing algorithms and covers how to set up simulations. By the end of this course, you should be able to:
• Describe the basic principles of time-domain simulations
• Describe when to use the Sample Mode signal processing and the basics of how it works
• Describe when to use the Block Mode signal processing and the basics of how it works
• Describe workflow for setting up time-domain simulations
• Set up time-domain simulations with sample mode processing
• Set up time-domain simulations with block mode processing

This course covers the basics of creating custom models. You will go through step-by-step examples of how to create three different types of custom models: S-parameter elements, compound elements and scripted elements. By the end of the course, you will be able to:
• Create S-parameter elements
• Locate resources for generating S-parameter files
• Create compound elements based on primitives
• Create scripted elements

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
