Taurus Medici is a 2D device simulator that models the electrical, thermal and optical characteristics of semiconductor devices. A wide variety of devices including MOSFETs, BJTs, HBTs, power devices, IGBTs, HEMTs, CCDs and photodetectors can be modeled. Taurus Medici can be used to design and optimize devices to meet performance goals, thereby reducing the need for costly experiments.
With the continued scaling of CMOS devices, device design and optimization become more difficult. Previously unimportant phenomena, such as direct tunneling, can now dominate device performance and design criteria. The vast array of advanced transport and quantum models available in Taurus Medici allow users to perform accurate simulations of deeply scaled devices.
