The Victory TCAD Suite

Silvaco TCAD has been used by Tier 1 power device manufactures and designers for decades. The introduction of Victory Process, Victory Mesh, and Victory Device significantly increases the functionality and flexibility of the tool set available to designers. In this article we look at how some of the features of this suite of tools improve the efficiency of the design flow.

Hints, Tips and Solutions

Specify Units in Victory Process Material Statement
It is crucial for any kind of calculations that units are consistent between equations and modeling modules. Often different units are used in various experimental and theoretical fields. Therefore, we have introduced standardized unit conversions, making it possible to specify any desired units when changing parameters within the MATERIAL statement.

How do I Load, Remesh, and Refine an Existing Device Structure in Victory Mesh?
Victory Mesh initially supported loading and remeshing of the saved status from Victory Process. Victory Mesh 1.5.0 onwards is now able to load and remesh individual structure files (.str files), including associated scalar fields. These include the result of a device simulation from software such as Victory Device and Atlas.
