Lite-On Semiconductor Standardizes on Silvaco TCAD for Power Devices

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 24, 2006 -- Silvaco International, a leading vendor of commercial TCAD software, today announced that Lite-On Semiconductor Corporation (LSC), a leading manufacturer of image sensors and discrete power devices, has standardized on the Silvaco TCAD process and device simulation flow to develop its next generation power devices.

"We chose the Silvaco TCAD solution for its broad functionality, reliable performance, experienced support, straightforward business model and the clear Stanford-based roadmap for the future," said C.C. Chen, executive VP, Discrete and Analog Division, for LSC. "We were able to simulate our existing processes and devices using Silvaco TCAD software without re-calibrating our existing Stanford-based model coefficients."

Silvaco provides advanced TCAD technologies based on the latest physical models for process and device simulation. Customers of Silvaco TCAD software create leading-edge MOS processes and devices, SOI, power devices, and optical semiconductors for sensors, display panels, LEDs and lasers. Customers are switching to Silvaco TCAD from other TCAD products because they do not have to recalibrate their model coefficients, re-establish their process and device simulation flows developed over many years, or learn new software.

About Silvaco TCAD Tools

ATHENA Process Simulation Framework enables process and integration engineers to develop and optimize semiconductor manufacturing processes. ATHENA provides an easy to use, modular, and extensible platform for simulating ion implantation, diffusion, etching, deposition, lithography, oxidation, and silicidation of semiconductor materials. It replaces costly wafer experiments with simulations to deliver shorter development cycles and higher yields.

ATLAS Device Simulation Framework enables device technology engineers to simulate the electrical, optical, and thermal behavior of semiconductor devices. ATLAS provides a physics-based, easy to use, modular, and extensible platform to analyze DC, AC, and time domain responses for all semiconductor based technologies in 2 and 3 dimensions.

Virtual Wafer Fab is an integrated environment of TCAD software to automate and emulate physical wafer manufacturing. These integrated tools facilitate the input, execution, run-time optimization, and results processing of TCAD simulations into one flow managed through a common database.

About Silvaco International

Silvaco International, headquartered in Santa Clara, California, is a leading vendor of technology computer aided design (TCAD) simulation software. Founded in 1984, and a TCAD leader since 1987, the company recently spun out its circuit simulation, parasitic extraction and IC CAD products as Simucad Design Automation so that Silvaco can focus exclusively on TCAD. The company delivers its proven Stanford-based TCAD products with experienced support and engineering services to provide complete semiconductor process and device simulation solutions. Worldwide customers include leading foundries, fabless semiconductor companies, integrated semiconductor manufacturers, universities, and semiconductor designers who require the broadest model support, highest accuracy and optimal performance.
