Device models for a laser diode, photodetector, MESFET, HEMT, bipolar transistor, diode, and resistor are proposed and are implemented in a commercial mixed-signal simulator along with models for an optical fiber, an external optical modulator, and a pulse pattern generator. The validity of the models is confirmed by comparing simulated and experimental results. The performance of a mixed photonic/electronic circuit, which is determined by a large-signal waveform and the device noises, is estimated by the present analysis method.
