Tunnel Junctions in SiLENSe 6.5

SiLENSe version 6.5 has been released. New version supports simulation of heterostructures including tunnel junctions. Tunnel junctions can be used to connect different cascades of LED/LD structures or enable replacing p-contact by combination of TJ and n-contact. The...
New option for PVT SiC

New option for PVT SiC

VR software for simulation of PVT SiC can now be used to estimate the expected wafer warpage for different positions of the slice in SiC boule. The model is based on the plastic strain inherited by the wafer from the crystal, which results in the wafer deformation...
