Building block and circuit simulation concepts are discussed with their advantages for the design and the production of photonics integrated circuits. Two examples are presented to demonstrate the validity of the circuit-based simulation in the prediction of the behaviour of the real circuit. Final results are comparable to those obtained through an electromagnetic simulation, also when spurious effects as mode coupling or chip facet induced cavities are taken into account.
