MOS-AK/GSA Modeling Working Group creates compact modeling open directory

May 08, 2012 // By Julien Happich
The MOS-AK/GSA Modeling Working Group held its annual spring workshop on April 26-27, 2012 at the Design Automation Division EAS of the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS in Dresden, Germany.

The workshop's three sessions focused on the advanced compact modeling for analog/RF, high-voltage metal-oxide semiconductor (HVMOS) IC design application, computer-aided design (CAD)/EDA simulations highlighting recent development of the open source CAD tools.

The session oral and poster presentations are available for download at

As a result of an unfolded compact modeling discussion, the MOS-AK Group followed recommendation of Alexander Petr, X-FAB, a member of the Extended MOS-AK/GSA Compact Modeling Committee, to create a compact modeling open directory (CMOD: The directory will list available SPICE/Compact models including Verilog-A models for an extensive range of the semiconductor devices. The MOS-AK/GSA Group believes that the CMOD initiative will also stimulate further compact model developments for inter domain technologies and multidisciplinary applications.
