Coventor SEMulator3D 7.0

EE Journal has an overview of new features Coventor SEMulator3D 7.0. Which incorporates new simulation and meshing capabilities.

They discuss new RC extraction for circuit simulation. In addition, they also discuss new 3D meshing export, as well as a built-in TCAD device simulation feature.

Coventor Adds RC Extraction Capability

EETimes reports that Coventor has added RC Extraction and other analysis features to their SEMulator3D process emulation software. This brings their tool in more direct competition with traditional TCAD. This is in contrast to their past blog postings which attempt to differentiate themselves from traditional process simulation and TCAD tools.

Process Simulation vs. Process Emulation: is SEMulator3D really TCAD?

Linking Virtual Wafer Fabrication Modeling with Device-level TCAD Simulation

It will be interesting to see if their work with Gold Standard Simulations continues, now that the TCAD company has been acquired by Synopsys.
