Complete SPICE Modeling Services

Silvaco provides SPICE  modeling services for the semiconductor industry. We offer an experienced staff of engineers and state-of-the-art laboratory. Our services are affordable, and designed to provide the accuracy and rapid turn around time required by our customers.

Silvaco’s modeling services are ideally suited to either compliment in-house SPICE modeling capabilities when time is critical, or to provide complete SPICE modeling services for occasional needs. We support CMOS, Bipolar, Diode, JFET, SOI, TFT and HBT technologies.

Modeling service is performed by using Utmost IV modeling and device characterization software: Automated data acquisition, SPICE model parameter extraction, model validation and model generation. Utmost IV is a state-of-the-art device characterization and SPICE modeling software.
