Device Simulation

Tools for simulating device performance

Device simulation tools simulate the electrical characteristics of semiconductor devices, as a response to external electrical, thermal, or optical boundary conditions imposed on the structure. The input device structure typically comes from process simulation steps using tools like Sentaurus Process or Taurus TSUPREM-4 or through CAD operations and process emulation steps with the aid of tools like Sentaurus Structure Editor.

 Synopsys offers two device simulation tools – Taurus Medici and Sentaurus Device. Taurus Medici is a 2D device simulation tool, and Sentaurus Device is a 2D and 3D device simulation tool with the best features incorporated from Taurus Medici and the ISE device simulator DESSIS.
