Synopsys, Inc. debuted the extension of its OptSim fibre optic systems modelling tool, developed to help designers accelerate the design of advanced optical telecommunication systems. The RSoft OptSim Circuit includes photonic integrated circuits (PICs)components that facilitate faster fibre optic networks, accommodate more efficient bandwidths, and support network traffic growth.

When combined, OptSim Circuit and OptSim deliver a single framework, engine and robust sets of models for studying systems ranging from long-haul optical communications systems to sub?m photonic circuits. For example, users can evaluate system-level performance in OptSim, of a PIC design in OptSim Circuit.

"OptSim Circuit offers an integrated environment for the development of cost-effective, energy-efficient and high-capacity photonic integrated devices and systems," said George Bayz, VP and GM of Synopsys' Optical Solutions Group. "OptSim Circuit also provides engineers with innovative new tools and model libraries to enable an intuitive and productive design process."

The system boasts powerful options for design setup, data visualisation, plotting and project resource management. It can model bidirectional propagation for both optical and electrical signals, as well as multi-path interference (MPI) from network and PIC elements.
