Optiwave software can be used in different industries and applications, including Fiber Optic Communication, Sensing, Pharma/Bio, Military & Satcom, Test & Measurement, Fundamental Research, Solar Panels, Components / Devices, etc..
OptiSPICE is the first circuit design software for analysis of integrated circuits including interactions of optical and electronic components. It allows for the design and simulation of opto-electronic circuits at the transistor level, from laser drivers to transimpedance amplifiers, optical interconnects and electronic equalizers.
OptiBPM is a comprehensive CAD environment used for the design of complex optical waveguides. Perform guiding, coupling, switching, splitting, multiplexing, and demultiplexing of optical signals in photonic devices.
The optimal design of a given optical communication system depends directly on the choice of fiber parameters. OptiFiber uses numerical mode solvers and other models specialized to fibers for calculating dispersion, losses, birefringence, and PMD.
Emerging as a de facto standard over the last decade, OptiGrating has delivered powerful and user friendly design software for modeling integrated and fiber optic devices that incorporate optical gratings.
Why Minimum value of Max Q factor is 6 required in Optical communication.Is it true?
If true or not explain the this theory concept.
Siva Rama Krishna
For optical communication the BER should be lower than 10e-9, which is a Q of 6. In other words, we consider a system with BER lower than 10e-9 (Q of 6) an error free system.
What is the formula between BER and Q?
I have attached three pictures taken from the component help of the BER Analyzer. You can access this by right clicking on the component and choosing Component Properties. Then click on Help and scroll down to the Technical Background section. The explanation of the Q factor calculation is found there.
