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
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:
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:

About MOS-AK Association
The MOS-AK is a HiTech forum to discuss the frontiers of electron device modeling with emphasis on simulation-aware compact/SPICE models and its Verilog-A standardization. The MOS-AK workshops play a central role in developing a common modeling interface among foundries, CAD vendors, IC designers and model developers by contributing and promoting different elements of compact model standardization and related tools for model development, validation and its implementation and distribution.
