Version 3 of OptiSPICE now supports the ability to interact with OptiSystem 11 though a new “Configure Co-simulation” capability which includes integrated OptiSystem optical and electrical input devices and the ability to automatically build an associated OptiSPICE NetList for file association with OptiSystem’s OptiSPICE NetList component. Also introduced in Version 3 are new optical components including a user-defined optical filter and an LED source.
OptiSystem Co-Simulation Library
NEW FEATURE Electrical Input component (Isource):
Models a current signal input from an OptiSystem component.
NEW FEATURE Electrical Voltage input component (Vsource):
Models a voltage signal input from an OptiSystem component.
NEW FEATURE Optical Input component (Optical Input):
Models a optical input from an OptiSystem component.
NEW FEATURE Optical filter:
Updated to allow for the definition of Bessel or Butterworth filter types (including bandwidth, insertion loss, and filter order).
NEW FEATURE Optical filter – measured:
Allows for measured filters data to be expressed as a Touchstone file or by file formats supported in OptiSystem (Power-Phase and Real-Imaginary).
NEW FEATURE Optical gain:
Can now characterize noise figure.
NEW FEATURE LED source:
This new component allows for the characterization of an LED device, including frequency, bandwidth, and semiconductor diode model parameters.
