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.
I want to know by using EDFA in optical link how many kilometer we can do transmission ?
Well it actually depends upon the Bandwidth allocation Anita. You have to check the B.W and then try to figure the loss in db/km and you can get the desired length.
According to theory and ITU-T recommendations, you need to astimate OSNR at the receiver based on attenuation in your fibers (which should be compenstaed by EDFA) and noise produced by EDFA
Additionally, you should consider that EDFA can launch high power into the fiber which might generate non-linear effects. In the end, the maximum reach in km is a trade-off between launch power and noise.
