This work addresses a versatile modeling of complex photonic integrated circuits (PICs) including optical and electrical sub-elements. We introduce a new family of electrical elements, together with a novel electronic-photonic co-design, that complements current capabilities of photonic circuit simulators. This is illustrated with the modeling of complex electric circuits contained in photonic devices. Simulations of the interaction between electrical and optical parts allow the analysis of unwanted effects such as reflections due to impedance mismatching, as well as the optimization of the PIC as a whole. We illustrate the functionalities of our approach through application examples. As a use case, we present a model of the electrical driver for a monolithically-integrated InP transmitter developed in frame of the European research project MIRTHE and the analysis of the driver and the EA-Modulator interplay.
