Power Device Development Overview

TCAD driven development and modeling of power device technologies enables device engineers to make virtual changes in operating conditions, device technology, or in semiconductor technology during development. This exploration builds qualitative and then quantitative understanding of the target power device under development. Iterative simulation then allows engineers to optimize device performance and operating parameters dramatically reducing the time and costs needed to reach volume production.
