Bases: kqcircuits.chips.chip.Chip

The PCell declaration for an AirbridgeCrossings chip.

On the left side of the chip there is a straight vertical waveguide and a meandering waveguide crossing it multiple times. There are airbridges at the crossings. On the right side there is likewise a straight and a meandering waveguide, but they do not cross at any point. In the center of the chip there is an array of mechanical tests of airbridges with different lengths and widths.


Child classes re-define this method to build the PCell.

PCell parameters:

  • crossings (Int) - Number of pairs of airbridge crossings, default=10

  • b_number (Int) - Number of airbridges in one element of the mechanical test array, default=5
