United Silicon Carbide selects Silvaco's device simulators

After an extensive evaluation and competitive bidding, USCi chose Silvaco for its unique capabilities to enhance the research and development of its SiC power devices
United Silicon Carbide, Inc., (USCi) of Monmouth Junction, New Jersey, has selected Silvaco's TCAD simulators for the modelling of its SiC power devices.

"Silvaco's Athena process and Atlas device simulators offer the kinds of simulation capabilities that our engineers need to understand the manufacturing effects, and the electrical and thermal characteristics in our SiC power devices," says Anup Bhalla, Vice President of Engineering at United Silicon Carbide.

"With these capabilities our engineers have the ability to develop and enhance our power device designs through simulation prior to manufacturing and know that our devices are going to perform as we expect them to after manufacturing and with higher production yields. This allows USCi to get our product to market with minimal time and costs," continues Bhalla.

"Silvaco has always been a leader in the TCAD industry," adds David Halliday, CEO at Silvaco. "Silicon Carbide is a technology that Silvaco implemented into our simulators several years ago. The maturity of this capability has been extremely important and beneficial to our customers in the power industry. Silvaco continues to offer innovative solutions with all of our products in order to supply the semiconductor industry with 'Best in Class' TCAD and EDA products."

United Silicon Carbide, Inc. is a semiconductor company pioneering the development of high efficiency SiC devices. USCi has been devoted to SiC device development for over a decade, providing its customers access to SiC transistor technologies.

Silvaco, Inc. is a provider of TCAD, circuit simulation, and IC CAD software tools. Silvaco's tools are used by fabs for developing semiconductor processes, and design houses for developing analogue, mixed-signal, and RF integrated circuits.
