OTemp


Optical Thermal Effect Modeling Platform

Thermal sensitivity is a key characteristic and potential issue of photonic devices used by optical interconnect networks, such as in-rack optical interconnect and inter/intra-chip optical networks. We developed OTemp (Optical Thermal Effect Modeling Platform) to systematically model and analyze the performance of optical interconnects under temperature variations. OTemp is open-source and implemented in C++.

OTemp models the thermal effects at photonic device level. It can analyze arbitrary optical interconnects using either a single wavelength or multiple wavelengths such as WDM. OTemp can perform both worst-case and average-case analysis. The following diagram is an overview of OTemp.
