The Simulation Standard, Silvaco’s technical journal for semiconductor process and device engineers is beginning its 30th year of publication. The latest issue has just been released and it outlines a complete power device design flow using the Victory suite of TCAD simulation solutions – Victory Process, Victory Mesh, and Victory Device. Below is an introduction to the Victory TCAD Suite article and a link the complete text which is 20 pages in length. Also in the latest issues are two Hints, Tips & Solutions articles: the first discusses handling different units in the Victory Process Material statement, and the second on “How do I Load, Remesh, and Refine an Existing Device Structure in Victory Mesh?” Click on the link to take you to the Simulation Standard article that presents all the details.
Silvaco TCAD has been used by Tier 1 power device manufactures and designers for decades. Victory Process, Victory Mesh, and Victory Device are a suite of tools that provide the functionality and flexibility that meet the needs of designers. In this article, we look at how some of the features of this suite improve the efficiency of the design flow. We go through, in detail, all the steps need to run the process, re-mesh, device, and MixedMode simulation of a trench-gated vertical IGBT.
Specify Units in Victory Process Material Statement
It is crucial for any kind of calculations that units are consistent between equations and modeling modules. Often different units are used in various experimental and theoretical fields. Therefore, we have introduced standardized unit conversions, making it possible to specify any desired units when changing parameters within the MATERIAL statement.
How do I Load, Remesh, and Refine an Existing Device Structure in Victory Mesh?
Victory Mesh initially supported loading and remeshing of the saved status from Victory Process. Victory Mesh 1.5.0 onwards is now able to load and remesh individual structure files (.str files), including associated scalar fields. These include the result of a device simulation from software such as Victory Device and Atlas.
