The MOS-AK Workshop aims to strengthen a network and discussion forum among experts in the field, enhance open information exchange related to compact/SPICE modeling and Verilog-A standardization, bring academic and industrial experts in the compact modeling field together, as well as obtain feedback from technology developers, circuit designers, and CAD/EDA tool developers and vendors.
Silvaco R&D will present two talks at the event:
Simulate 40X Faster with SmartSpice HPP, by Jody Matos, during the virtual session 11:00 – 14:00 (PST) on Dec.10, 2020 (Day 1)
As technology advances and the complexity of circuit designs continues to grow, analog simulation can easily become the bottleneck for design verification. In order to cope with this increasing pressure on the simulator’s performance, SmartSpice provides a scalable simulation engine: HPP (High Performance Parallel). In this talk, we describe how SmartSpice HPP takes advantage of the modern multicore hardware platforms to speed up all internal aspects of transient simulations of analog circuits by adopting a partition-based simulation. Attendees will have a better understanding of how SmartSpice HPP works and how to use it in order to provide fast and accurate transient simulations on a variety of designs, from medium- to large-size circuits, either pre- or post-layout. We will also demonstrate multiple usage modes, to show that SmartSpice HPP can not only be up to 8x more scalable than regular SmartSpice, but that it can also be up to 40x faster, while still keeping acceptable accuracy.
SPICE Modeling for Display Technologies, by Bogdan Tudor, during the virtual session 11:00 – 14:00 (PST) on Dec.11, 2020 (Day 2)
We discuss the SPICE modeling of various Display technology related devices, such as TFT, OLED and micro-LED. Several modeling approaches for these devices are reviewed, including empirical models, physics-based compact models and macromodels, as well as methods for simulating the optical output characteristics. This also illustrates the advantages of using TCAD simulations in modeling these devices.
