Reactor Scale​

Reactor Scale​

Novel architectures, materials, structures and packaging solutions are essential to address and enhance the power, performance, area, cost and time to market (PPACt) requirements of the semiconductor industry. The outcome is increased device complexity, placing greater demands on wafer fabrication equipment to achieve consistent, high-quality features across wafers and chambers while reducing operational costs and environmental impact.

ACE+ Suite solutions have made it possible to model complex reactors and a wide range of semiconductor manufacturing and packaging processes. These software solutions provide engineers the ability to simulate and analyze various aspects of the semiconductor manufacturing process, leading to improved efficiency, reduced costs and faster time to market for new products. Some of the key solutions include:​
