2014 Workshop on Compact Modeling at

Abstracts due: December 13th, 2013

Synopsis: Compact Models (CMs) for circuit simulation have been at the heart of CAD tools for circuit design over the past decades, and are playing an ever increasingly important role in the nanometer system-on-chip (SOC) era. As the mainstream MOS technology is scaled into the nanometer regime, development of a truly physical and predictive compact model for circuit simulation that covers geometry, bias, temperature, DC, AC, RF, and noise characteristics becomes a major challenge.

Workshop on Compact Modeling (WCM) Is one of the first of its kind in bringing people in the CM field together. The objective of WCM is to create a truly open forum for discussion among experts in the field as well as feedback from technology developers, circuit designers, and CAD tool vendors. The topics cover all important aspects of compact model development and deployment, within the main theme - compact models for circuit simulation.

Symposium Chair: Professor Xing Zhou Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
