Synopsys Technology Computer Aided Design (TCAD) offers a comprehensive suite of products that includes the industry leading process and device simulation tools, as well as a powerful GUI-driven simulation environment for managing simulation tasks and analyzing simulation results. The Synopsys TCAD process and device simulation tools support a broad range of applications such as CMOS, power, memory, optoelectronics, analog/RF and laser. In addition, Synopsys TCAD provides tools for interconnect modeling and extraction, providing critical parasitic information for optimizing chip performance.
TCAD for Manufacturing (TFM)
The Sentaurus TFM suite, which includes PCM Studio and PCM Library, provides a powerful environment for capturing multivariate process杁evice朿ircuit relationships in process compact models (PCMs), allowing a fast turnaround for identifying and analyzing factors that cause parametric yield loss in manufacturing. Derived from systematic TCAD simulations, PCMs encapsulate relationships between process variations and device朿ircuit performance through a set of analytic functions.
Process-aware Design for Manufacturing (PA-DFM)
The Synopsys PA-DFM product family addresses the two major sources of variability in a design ?one arising from stress proximity effects and the second from the spread of manufacturing process parameters across different die ?and utilizes accurate physical models of the manufacturing process. The PA-DFM product family抯 core products ? Seismos and Paramos ? enable designers to account correctly for manufacturing variability without major changes to the current design verification flow.
