SIT Adopts Silvaco's TCAD for Simulation of Wide Bandgap GaN Power Devices

YOKOHAMA, JAPAN -- (Marketwired) -- Oct 29, 2013 -- Silvaco Japan Co., Ltd (Silvaco) has announced that the Semiconductor Electronics Laboratory in the Department of Electronic Engineering at Shibaura Institute of Technology (SIT) has adopted Silvaco's Atlas device simulator for its research on GaN compound semiconductors.

SIT provides applied research on GaN compound semiconductors for power electronics an area that is expected to grow considerably in the near future. Associated Professor Kan Akatsu, Director of the Center for Power Electronics, decided to adopt Silvaco's Atlas device simulator for its proven performance in compound semiconductor analysis.

Atlas includes many models for electrical, thermal, and frequency analysis that provide the high accuracy needed for device simulation of compound semiconductors. It also includes a unique solver for compound semiconductor materials with wide bandgaps, resulting in high convergence of the simulation. Atlas has been widely used in many companies, universities, and R&D facilities for research and development of semiconductor devices created with new materials including compound semiconductors.

"For current research and development of GaN compound materials, a reliable device simulator is indispensable for optimizing the design incorporating the properties of each material," said Hiroyasu Ishikawa, Associated Professor of SIT in charge of the creation of wide bandgap devices. "Silvaco's Atlas is the appropriate tool to satisfy our laboratory's needs and I hope that Atlas will accelerate our research and development."

David Halliday, CEO of Silvaco said, "We are very happy that SIT chose Atlas for its unique capabilities and superior performance. Silvaco's extensive experience in developing and providing device simulation solutions for semiconductor devices, especially compound devices, places us in a unique position to continue our leadership position as the vendor of choice for the simulation of power devices. We are excited to be working with SIT to continue improving our solutions to address the new and upcoming industry challenges and customer needs."
