openEPDA™ is a collection of open standards to be used in electronic-photonic design automation. These include definition of data interchange formats to facilitate Foundry PDK distribution and easier simulation and measurement data exchange between the parties involved in the PIC design chain.
openEPDA standards are split in three parts based on their target usage in EPDA:
::General purpose standards
These standards are intended to be used for multiple purposes in both PDK and measurement / simulation definitions.
These standards cover the data to be provided by the foundries for PDK definition.
Measurement / circuit simulation definitions
We have developed an openepda python package, which includes validators for the above formats, as well as file readers / writers.
