TriQuint Semiconductor Selects Synopsys' TCAD Sentaurus for Compound Semiconductor Technology Development
Advanced Device Simulation Capabilities Support III-V and III-Nitride Device Development
Compound semiconductor devices are critical components in high-frequency applications where silicon-based devices cannot meet frequency, power generation or efficiency requirements. As a leader in radio frequency (RF) components and solutions, TriQuint develops a wide range of III-V and III-Nitride devices tailored to specific RF applications.
"Many of our products at TriQuint combine high-frequency and high-efficiency requirements which can only be met with compound semiconductor transistor technology. TCAD Sentaurus helps us tailor and optimize the design of these transistors to specific applications, and to deliver truly innovative solutions to our customers," said Otto Berger, director Advanced Technology at TriQuint.
The TCAD Sentaurus product family comprises 2D and 3D process and device simulation tools used for exploring and optimizing silicon and compound semiconductor technologies.
"Compound semiconductors play a vital role in today's and tomorrow's wireless world. We've seen a rising interest in the application of our simulation tools to the design of these devices as companies continue to push against the envelope of high-frequency and high-efficiency to meet stringent wireless requirements," said Howard Ko, senior vice president and general manager of the Silicon Engineering Group at Synopsys. "TriQuint is a leader in the compound semiconductor segment, and its adoption of TCAD Sentaurus is a testament to the value Synopsys TCAD simulation brings to the market."
