Flat Panel / Display

The flat panel / display industry uses our plasma (e.g. VizGlow), electromagnetics (e.g. VizEM) as well as fluid flow / particle modeling (e.g. VizFlow and VizGrain)  software.  Industrial clients in this domain have worked with us through software licensing and consulting projects to help them analyze existing equipment design, improve processes (e.g. process uniformity, throughput, film quality, etc.), and develop new equipment concepts.  The large equipment sizes, e.g. for Generation 10 panels, are especially difficult to design and computational modeling/simulations can play a particularly important role in the development of these systems.  The large process equipment sizes translate to large-scale simulation problem sizes and therefore especially difficult and time-consuming to model.  Such problems have benefited tremendously from the large-scale parallel computing capability built into all of our multi-dimensional simulation tools.
