  • MEMS, 3D IC and more...

Silvaco technology experts will be available in the Silvaco booth to discuss the company's innovations in the following key focus areas:

  • Low- and high-energy ion implantation in silicon and silicon carbides
  • Ion beam precision materials modification -- amorphization, stress engineering using carbon and germanium implants, mask-less selective etching in implanted areas
  • Rapid thermal annealing (RTA) and laser annealing for advanced CMOS processes
  • Ion beam etching (IBE) of pillar structures for spin-transfer torque magnetic random-access memory (STT-MRAM) and magnetic heads for high-density bit pattern media. Precise characterization and control of pattern shapes and secondary material redeposition effects
  • Reactive-ion etching (RIE) and ion-enhanced chemical etching (IECE) of very deep trenches for 3D NAND and other applications
  • Anisotropic potassium hydroxide (KOH) etching for MEMS applications
  • Stress simulation to determine keep-out-zone (KOZ) in through silicon via (TSV) technology
  • 3D TCAD products used for large application space, including rapid FinFET prototyping, large structure parallelized simulations for multi-cell IGBTs, robust, stable oxidation simulation for trench MOS power devices and CMOS image sensors, stress engineering, single event effects (SEE) and total dose reliability simulation
  • Virtual wafer fab (VWF) software suite for individual and full-flow process calibration and optimization using design of experiments (DOE) and multiple automated simulations
