Improving advanced semiconductor manufacturing

The Samsung Device Lab (SDL) develops simulation solutions for advanced semiconductor manufacturing technology requirements.

The Device Lab was initiated in January 2011 and is based in Silicon Valley. The lab focuses on the development of Technology Computer Aided Design (TCAD) models and simulation software for deploying advanced manufacturing processes for semiconductor devices and materials. SDL supports logic, memory and LED technology development, as well as the development of compact models for advanced logic and memory technology.

In addition, the teams of top engineering talent at the lab conduct pioneering TCAD-based device research on extremely low-power applications, and advanced model and metrology development for the Optical Proximity Correction (OPC) used in semiconductor device manufacturing.
