How to Optimize Microelectronic Design Using Modeling and Simulation

How to Optimize Microelectronic Design Using Modeling and Simulation

1 hour | Free | Online | Arpad Forberger


Engineers work on optimizing microelectronics such as IGBTs and SMDs to improve device performance, minimize energy consumption, and ensure reliability. This optimization extends the life cycle, enhances functionality, increases energy efficiency, and reduces heat dissipation in applications ranging from power electronics to consumer devices. Ultimately, it drives technological advancements, creating smaller, more powerful, and energy-efficient electronics across various industries.

Simultaneously, engineers face pressure to follow the Global Standards for the Microelectronics Industry (JEDEC) – A global organization that establishes standards for the microelectronics industry that develops guidelines for design, testing, and quality assurance, ensuring compatibility and interoperability among different manufacturers’ products-. Adhering to JEDEC standards promotes consistency, reliability, and ease of integration in electronic systems, fostering efficiency across the microelectronics industry.

Keeping up with market demands and industry standards has its own set of challenges. For example, some of the physical tests of microelectronics require high-pressure and high-temperature environments. Moreover, performing physical testing of microelectronics is costly, time-consuming, and limits flexibility for design modifications. The need for precise instrumentation, potential damage to prototypes during testing, and the difficulty in assessing long-term reliability contribute to the complexities of physical testing in the microelectronics industry.

Join this webinar to find out how you can leverage the power of modeling and simulation techniques to ensure compliance with JEDEC standards, extend the life cycle of microelectronics, reduce physical prototypes, and lower costs.
