Coventor provides highly advanced process modeling and design automation solutions used to invent the next generation of intelligent electronics. We are dedicated to the success of our customers, and solve real-world process development, design and integration problems for the semiconductor and MEMS industries. Coventor is helping to build a connected world of electronic devices that will improve the productivity and quality of life worldwide.
Coventor, a Lam Research company, is a market leader in automated solutions for developing semiconductor process technology, as well as micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). Coventor serves a worldwide customer base of integrated device manufacturers, memory suppliers, fabless design houses, independent foundries, and R&D organizations. Its SEMulator3D modeling and analysis platform is used for fast and accurate ‘virtual fabrication’ of advanced manufacturing processes, allowing engineers to understand manufacturing effects early in the development process and reduce time-consuming and costly silicon learning cycles. Its MEMS design solutions are used to develop MEMS-based products for automotive, aerospace, industrial, defense, and consumer electronics applications, including smart phones, tablets, and gaming systems. Our software and expertise help customers predict the structures and behavior of their designs before they commit to time-consuming and costly actual fabrication.
The company was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina. We have development and sales offices in Waltham, Massachusetts; Fremont, California; Paris, France; Korea and Tokyo, Japan.
Dr. David M. Fried
Vice President Computational Products
The structural complexity of advanced semiconductor technologies has increased dramatically in recent years, driving longer fab-based experimentation to develop these new technologies. Our goal at Coventor is to provide accurate and predictive 3D process models that can replace these silicon learning cycles, and to ultimately help our customers accelerate time to market and lower development costs.
Kenneth B. Greiner
Senior Director, Semiconductor Product Development
Novel products are often discovered at the intersections of technical domains. Our diverse team uses their expertise in semiconductor process physics, simulation, software engineering, graphics, statistics and quality assurance to create revolutionary engineering tools for the semiconductor industry.
Dr. Gerold Schröpfer
Director, Europe and MEMS worldwide
Coventor has become one of the most trusted and innovative suppliers of engineering software in the semiconductor and MEMS industry, and has established close partnerships with world-leading commercial and R&D institutions. We are dedicated to the success of our customers, and are developing best-in-class software technology for tomorrow’s major advances in silicon.
Director, Semiconductor Process & Integration
Achieving early yield becomes more and more expensive and time consuming at each new semiconductor node, due to increased device complexity and shrinking critical dimensions. Process interactions and process windows are difficult to determine in advance without computerized process modeling. Our goal is to act as an expert, collaborative partner to our customers during this modeling process, to help our customers quickly bring their new technologies to market.
