Integrating the most advanced nanometer technologies such as FinFETs, Quantum Dots, MicroLEDs, MRAM, and ReRAM in IP and SoC designs, requires new simulation, optimization, and automation technologies. Physical models for new materials need to be captured to enable TCAD process and device simulation that extends from the atomic-level to the circuit-level. This simulation and modeling can then be promoted to a higher level for design and technology co-optimization (DTCO) from device to IP level, followed by system and technology co-optimization at the SoC level. Silvaco TCAD software accurately simulates the manufacturing process, device characteristics and resulting circuity. In addition, Silvaco EDA tools take the results of TCAD analysis to simulate circuit behavior across a range of effects including process, voltage and temperature variability, and enable a cohesive DTCO flow for Smart Design. In this talk, I will describe the need for a toolset that can manipulate atoms in semiconductor structures, as well how a suite of tools can be tied together in a cohesive simulation environment to take full advantage of the performance and capabilities in the latest nanometer processes.
Babak Taheri is the CEO at Silvaco Inc., a leading provider of TCAD, EDA, and design IP software. He began his career at Silvaco as chief technical officer and executive vice-president of products. Previously, he was the CEO / president of IBT working with investors, private equity firms, and startups on M&A, technology, and business diligence.While at IBT, he served on advisory boards of MEMS World Summit, Novasentis, AGCM, ALEA labs, Lion Point Capital, and Silver Lake. Prior to IBT, he was the VP & GM of the sensor solutions division at Freescale semiconductor (now NXP).Babak was the recipient of ”the perfect project award” in 2003 while at Cypress; Twice recipient of the “Diamond Chip Award” in 2013 /14 while at Freescale; recipient of the MEMS & Sensors executive of the year award in 2014, and in 2015 was the recipient of the Distinguished Engineering Alumni Medal from UC. Davis College of Engineering, where he is on the advisory board to the college.He also held VP/GM roles at Cypress Semiconductors, Invensense (now TDK) and key roles at SRI International and Apple. He received his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from UC Davis with majors in EECS and Neurosciences, has over 20 published articles and holds 28 issued patents.
