Silvaco International, a leading vendor of commercial TCAD software, today announced that Lite-On Semiconductor Corporation (LSC), a leading manufacturer of image sensors and discrete power devices, has standardized on the Silvaco TCAD process and device simulation flow to develop its next generation power devices.
“We chose the Silvaco TCAD solution for its broad functionality, reliable performance, experienced , straightforward business model and the clear Stanford-based roadmap for the future”, said C.C. Chen, executive VP, Discrete and Analog Division, for LSC. “We were able to simulate our existing processes and devices using Silvaco TCAD software without re-calibrating our existing Stanford-based model coefficients.”
Silvaco provides advanced TCAD technologies based on the latest physical models for process and device simulation. Customers of Silvaco TCAD software create leading-edge MOS processes and devices, SOI, power devices, and optical semiconductors for sensors, display panels, LEDs and lasers. Customers are switching to Silvaco TCAD from other TCAD because they do not have to recalibrate their model coefficients, re-establish their process and device simulation flows developed over many years, or learn new software.
About Silvaco TCAD Tools
ATHENA Process Simulation Framework enables process and integration engineers to develop and optimize semiconductor manufacturing processes. ATHENA provides an easy to use, modular, and extensible platform for simulating ion implantation, diffusion, etching, deposition, lithography, oxidation, and silicidation of semiconductor materials. It replaces costly wafer experiments with simulations to deliver shorter development cycles and higher yields.
ATLAS Device Simulation Framework enables device technology engineers to simulate the electrical, optical, and thermal behavior of semiconductor devices. ATLAS provides a physics-based, easy to use, modular, and extensible platform to analyze DC, AC, and time domain responses for all semiconductor based technologies in 2 and 3 dimensions.
Virtual Wafer Fab is an integrated environment of TCAD software to automate and emulate physical wafer manufacturing. These integrated tools facilitate the input, execution, run-time optimization, and results processing of TCAD simulations into one flow managed through a common database.
