    Semiconductor software simulation

    Are there software that allow you to simulate the charge distribution in the semiconductors?
    I general, are there software that allow to simulate behave of different combination of semiconductor?

    Re: Semiconductor software simulation

    Generally referred to as TCAD, different tools will either
    create a finite element mesh of doping and oxide features
    from a process flow deck, or perform device electrical
    simulations based on an input (2-D or 3-D) structure.
    Some tools will pass the process simulator's output to
    the device simulator's input ("some assembly required").

    Synopsys and Silvaco are big names, there are versions
    of some of the older tools that have been "released into
    the wild" but you should not underestimate the "learning
    curve" or how much effort / uncertainty / error that even
    the most experienced user encounters.

    Re: Semiconductor software simulation

    Can you tell me where to find the old versions of this software?

    Re: Semiconductor software simulation

    I do not know, I recall "seeing it go past" as I was looking
    for open source circuit simulation tools. I'd look for free
    versions of PISCES, SUPREM, ATLAS, ATHENA - I think
    it was one of those duos. But that's about all I can recall.
