What's New in TCAD

Sentaurus TCAD & Atomera Webinar: On-Demand


Join and learn about how semiconductor device improvements can be achieved by using Atomera MST technologies and MSTcad toolset with Synopsys TCAD solutions.  


TCAD Virtual Seminar - On Demand


Join our online TCAD Seminar (formerly TCAD Asia Pacific Seminar) to learn about the application of Synopsys TCAD solutions to accelerate the research, development, and optimization of semiconductor technologies. The seminar tracks cover all major semiconductor technologies, from advanced logic and memory to analog, power, and optoelectronics. The solutions presented in this seminar are based on the industry-standard Sentaurus TCAD and Process Explorer tools, integrated into simulation flows that often also include the QuantumATK platform for atomic-scale materials modeling and TCAD-to-SPICE extraction for links into circuit simulation.
