[mos-ak] A new approach to compact semiconductor device modelling with Qucs Verilog-A analogue module synthesis

A new approach to compact semiconductor device modelling with Qucs Verilog-A analogue module synthesis  

M. E. Brinson 1,* andV. Kuznetsov 2  

Keywords:Qucs; Verilog-A analogue module synthesis;equation-defined devices (EDD); compact device modelling; circuit simulation  

Summary: Since the introduction of SPICE non-linear controlled voltage and current sources, they have become a central feature in the interactive development of behavioural device models and circuit macromodels. The current generation of SPICE-based open source general public license circuit simulators, including Qucs, Ngspice and Xyce©, implements a range of mathematical operators and functions for modelling physical phenomena and system performance. The Qucs equation-defined device is an extension of the SPICE style non-linear B type controlled source which adds dynamic charge properties to behavioural sources, allowing for example, voltage and current dependent capacitance to be easily modelled. Following, the standardization of Verilog-A, it has become a preferred hardware description language where analogue models are written in a netlist format combined with more general computer programming features for sequencing and controlling model operation. In traditional circuit simulation, the generation of a Verilog-A model from a schematic, with embedded non-linear behavioural sources, is not automatic but is normally undertaken manually. This paper introduces a new approach to the generation of Verilog-A compact device models from Qucs circuit schematics using a purpose built analogue module synthesizer. To illustrate the properties and use of the Qucs Verilog-A module synthesiser, the text includes a number of semiconductor device modelling examples and in some cases compares their simulation performance with conventional behavioural device models.

[mos-ak] [press note] Spring MOS-AK Workshop @ cfaed

The MOS-AK Association held its annual spring compact modeling and Verilog-A standardization workshop at the Center for Advancing Electronics Dresden (cfaed), TU Dresden, on March 18, 2016

Published on  in MARTIN CLAUS GROUP <https://cfaed.tu-dresden.de/claus-group/news_reader/spring-mos-ak-workshop-cfaed>


More than 40 registered academic researchers and modeling engineers attended two sessions to hear 10 technical compact modeling engineering talks. This year, compact modeling of emerging technologies such as organic transistors, carbon nanotube transistors and chemical transistors were in focus with contributions from industry and academia. "The talks and discussions revealed an increasing interest of industry and system designers to evaluate the performance and applicability of emerging technologies," summarized cfaed group leader Dr.-Ing. Martin Claus, local organizer of the workshop in Dresden. He pointed out that "compact models bridge the gap between technology development and applications by providing useful insights for guiding the technology development and by enabling circuit design." MOS-AK is a dedicated forum for engineers and scientists working in that field. The MOS-AK Dresden workshop presentations are available here: http://www.mos-ak.org/dresden_2016/

The event received full sponsorship from leading industrial partners as well as technical program promotion by the cfaed, IEEE WIE Swiss Chapter, IEEE EDS German Chapter, NEEDS Nanohub as well as Europractice.

The MOS-AK Association is coordinating several upcoming modeling events focusing on the Verilog-A compact model standardization as well as open source FOSS TCAD/EDA simulation tool developments:
