Quickstart: First simple circuit design¶
This tutorial shows how to design a simple functional circuit: a ring resonator connected to grating couplers.
We start from existing components in the Picazzo library in order to keep the tutorial short. The code consists of two main parts:
- Define the layout and export a GDSII file, the standard format for sending the design to a fabrication facility.
- Run a circuit simulation, to understand the behavior of the circuit.
THis will result in the following output:
For your comfort, the code has been subdivided in smaller steps which you can go through sequentially:
