US-based Silvaco, a world-class provider of electronic design automation software, has set up a joint lab with Leti. The three-year lab will focus on the development of electrical behavior models for nanowire CMOS transistors and gallium nitride power transistors. The models developed will be integrated into Silvaco’s software, used to design and simulate circuits built on these technologies.
With the arrival of nanotechnology, simulation has become a crucial step in the design process, enabling advanced verification testing at circuit level before engaging in costly fabrication. The joint lab will also position Leti technologies on a competitive market and pave the way for broader dissemination of these technologies.
