Workshop on Compact Modeling at the Nanotech 2009
May 5-6, 2009
Venue George R. Brown Convention Center
Houston, Texas, USA
Synopsis Compact Models (CMs) for circuit simulation have been at the heart of CAD tools for circuit design over the past decades, and are playing an ever increasingly important role in the nanometer system-on-chip (SOC) era.  As the mainstream MOS technology is scaled into the nanometer regime, development of a truly physical and predictive compact model for circuit simulation that covers geometry, bias, temperature, DC, AC, RF, and noise characteristics becomes a major challenge.

Workshop on Compact Modeling (WCM) is one of the first of its kind in bringing people in the CM field together.  The objective of WCM is to create a truly open forum for discussion among experts in the field as well as feedback from technology developers, circuit designers, and CAD tool vendors.  The topics cover all important aspects of compact model development and deployment, within the main theme - compact models for circuit simulation, which are largely categorized into the following groups:

  • Intrinsic Models
    • Bulk MOSFET
    • Multiple-Gate (MG-FET) - UTB-SOI/double-gate/tri-gate/GAA
    • High-Voltage/LDMOS
    • Schottky-Barrier/Si-nanowire (SB-FET/SiNW)
    • Bipolar/Junction (BJT/HBT/SiGe/JFET)
    • RF/noise
  • Extrinsic/Interconnect Models
    • Parasitic elements
    • Passive device
    • Diode
    • Resistor
    • ESD
    • Interconnect
  • Atomic/Quantum Models
    • Ballistic device
    • Carbon-Nanotube (CNFET)
  • Statistical Models
    • Statistical/process-based
    • Reliability/hot carrier
    • Numerical/TCAD/table-based
  • Model Extraction and Interface
    • Parameter extraction and optimization
    • Model-simulator interface
    • Model standardization
