A scattering matrix oriented CAD tool is presented for design and simulation of photonic integrated circuits. In a scattering matrix approach each component is represented by a scattering matrix which describes the signal transfer between the different ports of the component. These components are usually waveguides. As an example of a more complicated component simulation of an optical PHASAR demultiplexer will be described and the potential of the approach will be illustrated in simulating an integrated add-drop multiplexer and comparing the results with measurement data of a realized device.
