Silvaco wins contract for software modelling project

Silvaco, a provider of computer-aided design (TCAD) and electronic design automation (EDA) software, and its partners have been awarded a €4.9m (£4.2m) project to develop advanced software modelling methods.

The company claims this will lead to improved design efficiency of the complex semiconductor components needed in critical applications.

Use of high levels of integration in heterogeneous system-in-package (SiP) circuit designs results in smaller, smarter and more energy-efficient products for aerospace, automotive, healthcare and consumer electronics.

The latest project, named PARSIMO (Partitioning and Modelling of SiP), will last three years and has been sponsored by ENIAC JU, the public-private partnership that brings together the European Commission with researchers in the nanotechnology sector.
