  • ProTek Devices Enters into Agreement to Use Silvaco’s TCAD and EDA Tools
    for an LED driver we introduced in 2013 The flow consisted of the Gateway tool for schematic entry and SmartSpice for circuit simulation We then turned to IC CAD s Expert layout editor the Guardian tool for physical verification and Hipex for post layout netlist RC extraction and full chip simulations When we used these tools they yielded results for the LED driver that verified market viability This was just one of many successful uses of the Silvaco EDA flow Based on these concluding results we ve decided to continue our use of Silvaco s tools in 2014 ProTek Devices also used Silvaco s TCAD tools in 2013 to perform process and device simulation for many TVS and low capacitance arrays Diffusion profiles structure files were created using the Athena process simulator in order to calculate required surface concentration junction depths and peak fields The structure files were then imported to Atlas Silvaco s device simulator to generate current voltage and capacitance curves Subsequent silicon testing for breakdown voltage capacitance and the spreading resistance profile very closely resembled simulation results This helps expedite time to market reduce design costs and in turn lower the cost of components for customers Our application engineer support group has worked with the ProTek Devices team on many component designs said Michel Blanchette regional applications engineering manager at Silvaco We ve had a chance to work together on new PDK releases for different foundries new tool transitions and many other support related activities We are excited about ProTek Devices continued commitment to the Silvaco toolset We look forward to assisting ProTek Devices achieve many more successful projects in 2014 About Silvaco Inc Silvaco Inc is a leading provider of TCAD circuit simulation and IC CAD software tools Silvaco s tools are used by fabs for
