How to access this item?


Crosslight is a suite of semiconductor device simulation tools, featuring modeling of optoelectronic devices and materials properties. The suite includes five main programs:
  • NovaTCAD:
    • An easy-to-use windows-based simulation package for microelectronics applications
  • Pics3D:
    • 3D modeling tool for laser diodes and other photonic devices
    • Tools for advanced users; preferred for model of multi-lateral modes of optoelectronic devices
  • Apsys:
    • Advanced physical modeling of semiconductor devices
    • General purpose 2D finite element modeling tool of compound semiconductors and Si (e.g., temperature dependence)
    • 3D option available
  • CSupreme:
    • Process simulation software package for integrated circuit (IC) design. Includes 3D tools.
    • For strained silicon, SiC and GaN-based material systems.
    • Includes GUI for converting GDSII device mask layout to 3D input decks
  • Procom:
    • 2D and 3D process software for simulation of compound semiconductor growth by Metal-Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD).
    • e.g., model semiconductor film growth rate, composition, thickness uniformity, dopant incorporation, and defect distribution based on chemical species and growth condition parameters
