Abstract

spice is a widely used simulation tool for electrical circuits and systems. When optoelectronic elements, such as lasers, detectors, modulators, etc., and optical elements, such as lenses, gratings, beam splitters, etc., are incorporated into spice, optoelectronic system simulation can be combined with that of electronic systems, facilitating hybrid system design and analysis. We discuss an optoelectronic spice implementation that includes time-, power-, and wavelength-domain behaviors. Examples of optical component simulation and optical interconnect system simulation by use of spice are included and compared with the results from a conventional ray-tracing optical analysis tool.
