Semiconductor

We have a strong legacy of supporting the semiconductor equipment and integrated-circuit (IC) manufacturing industry with our software products, databases, and consulting projects.  Several leading semiconductor manufacturers use our non-equilibrium plasma modeling tool VizGlow to help them analyze existing equipment, improve processes, and develop new equipment concepts.  IC manufacturers use our software to optimize their fabrication processes, identify/rectify process anomalies, and also design new equipment for their needs.

Our fast reactor modeling tool ChemZone has been used to rapidly explore large process parameter spaces in semiconductor manufacturing and also for the development and validation of new finite-rate chemical kinetic mechanisms process plasmas, combustion, and other gas chemical kinetics.

We have supported this industry with numerous consulting projects, software licensing and training arrangements over the years.
