class picazzo3.wg.spirals.cell.DoubleSpiral(*args, **kwargs)

Double spiral class with both access waveguides on the outside of the spiral. The trace template provided in the property trace_template is used to build a chain of waveguides.


n_o_loops: int and number > 0, optional

Number of loops in the spiral

trace_template: PCell and _TraceTemplate, optional

Trace template used in the chain.

cell_instances: _PCellInstanceDict, optional

name: optional

The unique name of the pcell

traces: List with type restriction, allowed types: <class ‘ipkiss3.pcell.cell.pcell.PCell’>, locked

n_o_traces: int and number > 0, locked

Total number of traces used in the spiral.



stub_direction: optional

view_name: str, optional

The name of the view

inner_size: Coord2, optional

Inner size of the the spiral, defaults to 3 * spacing + 2 * bend_radius, in each direction

spacing: float and Real, number and number >= 0, optional

spacing between the individual loops.

spiral_center: Coord2, optional

locatation of the center of the spiral.

shapes: list, optional

List of shapes used to build the traces

flatten: optional

If true the instances are flattened

grids_per_unit: locked

Number of grid cells per design unit

units_per_grid: locked

Ratio of grid cell and design unit

auto_transform: locked

grid: float and number > 0, locked

design grid. Extracted by default from TECH.METRICS.GRID

unit: float and number > 0, locked

design unit. Extracted by default from TECH.METRICS.UNIT
