Perspective on TCAD Integration at Berkeley

  • A. Neureuther
  • R. Wang
  • J. Helmsen


A perspective on TCAD integration is given along with highlights from work at Berkeley on applications and future systems which contain exploratory aspects of interest in TCAD development. The aspects of interest include process flow simulation, linking to the IC designer, design task interfaces, utilities for mapping data between simulators, computational geometry algorithms, and interfacing and testing centralized computational services from solid modelers.
