Software Program for Academic Institutions

The objective of the University Software Program is to provide easy access to Silvaco’s leading TCAD and EDA design tools in support of the education of future semiconductor design engineers.

Entry Requirements

All applicants to the program must be accredited, degree-granting academic institutions.

Available Software Licenses

Silvaco has standard software bundles for Universities.

For TCAD users, an OMNI License enables access to a full suite of Silvaco TCAD tools. You may combine OMNI License bundles with term-based licensing of individual tools for an optimal product mix.

For EDA users, an EDA Academic Suite provides all the licenses necessary to learn all the essential EDA design functions typically found in a commercial design flow.


Software updates are included.

Universities do not receive technical software support from Silvaco.


This program is strictly for use in academic research and teaching only. Immediate permanent termination of academic licenses and other liabilities will result from any trace of commercial activity. The academic institution is responsible for administering and monitoring this program carefully.
