Users can install a compact model library by right clicking on the Design Kits folder, selecting "Install" and choosing the right cml file, or by using the "installdesignkit" script command. After successfully installing the CML, the elements will appear in the Design Kits folder and they can only be used as references. The installation process is shown below.
Select "Design Kits" folder -> right click -> specify the cml file and installation path
In the example file mzi_reference_circuit.icp, the MZI structure is constructed by the references elements in the installed Design Kit. The following figure shows the circuit in the example file.
If the example file is send to another end user without the design kit installed, the elements will appear in red shadow to indicate the broken references. This means the compact models are not available in the user’s design kit library and they are not usable in the design.
