The latest version of OptiSPICE features a number of new enhancements to address the design and simulation of optical integrated circuits including a new multimode waveguide element and multilayer filters.

New Electrical Elements & Models

NEW FEATURE BSIM4:

Developed to explicitly address many issues in modeling CMOS technology and RF high-speed CMOS circuit simulation

NEW FEATURE JFET and MESFET:

New field effect transistor elements.

NEW FEATURE MOSFET, BSIM3 and BSIM3SOI:

Now includes temperature dependence and new noise models.

New Optical Elements & Models

NEW FEATURE Waveguide Elements:

A new multi-mode waveguide element with configurable waveguide parameters.

NEW FEATURE Multilayer Filters:

An active filter comprised of a set of layers (interfaces with waveguides between them). It includes temperature and voltage dependent indices for all layers.
