VPIphotonics announces design suite updates


The company says its latest version significantly advances simulation and design workflows for communications, computing, and emerging applications

VPIphotonics has announced that it has updated its design suite, with the latest edition, Version 11.5, now available for immediate upgrade.

VPIphotonics Design Suite comprises professional application-specific simulation tools and add-on toolkits for photonic components and optical transmission systems. The company says that Version 11.5 offers an extension of these tools and added flexibility for high-demand emerging applications by streamlining usability, design processes, and data analysis.

According to VPIphotonics, this new update significantly advances simulation and design workflows for a wide range of applications, through features including: next-generation direct detection and coherent transmission systems; spatial division multiplexing using multi-core fibres; free-space optics for satellite communications; semiconductor optical lasers and amplifiers; and passive photonic devices in various technologies.

The company added that these software solutions have been instrumental in the success of research and design projects by leading commercial companies and educational institutions. Version 11.5 aims to build upon this with even more powerful capabilities.

“We are always listening to feedback from our users about applications that are challenging to address with traditional design tools,” said André Richter, general manager at VPIphotonics. “This latest version adds powerful new modelling features and design automation functions. It greatly improves the user experience, speeding up the work process.”
