A Primer on Semiconductor Device Simulation

Computer simulation is now an essential tool for semiconductor process and device research and development, but to use a simulation tool intelligently, one must know what's "under the hood." This talk is a tutorial introduction designed for someone using semiconductor device simulation for the first time. After reviewing the semiconductor equations, I will briefly describe how one solves them "exactly" on a computer. I'll then discuss an example device simulation program and conclude with some thoughts about how to effectively use simulation in practice.
