Featuring Eric Guichard, SVP and GM of TCAD Silvaco, Inc.

Abstract: As one of only a few generic TCAD providers, Silvaco TCAD simulation solution covers the full spectrum, from circuit simulation size, using Victory TCAD, to nanometric size using Victory Atomistic, an NEGF based quantum transport simulation solution inherited from Purdue University. The addition of Machine Learning and AI, to process significantly more data than before, combined with compute power and parallelization, offers the best in class TCAD simulation solution today. We will start this webinar by a brief introduction of the Silvaco company then discuss TCAD background (What is TCAD?, Why use TCAD?, and Challenges) then review the Silvaco TCAD solution with application examples in market segments of Power, Display, and CMOS before concluding with a discussion around AI and Digital twin.
