Software Streamlines 3D Semiconductor Design

MicwaveRFlogoThe latest version of this semiconductor-process modeling software boosts speed, accuracy, and capabilities all in a simpler, easier-to-use package.
Jack Browne | Microwaves and RF

Use of three-dimensional (3D) semiconductor structures has become commonplace within many markets, and in turn, semiconductor-process technologies continue to advance in support of higher-speed, more-dense active devices. For example, Coventor stays at the forefront with new and updated tools that predict the performance of different 3D semiconductor designs.

Case in point is the company’s fifth generation of its process simulation software, SEMulator3D 5.0. The software not only adds features for new process capabilities, but also simplifies the learning process for using the software. It’s a powerful simulation platform for predicting the effects of different process parameters on semiconductor and microelectomechanical-systems (MEMS) devices.
