SPICE Modeling for Flexible Electronics

SPICE Modeling for Flexible Electronics

Flexible electronics has an exciting potential for enabling bendable, rollable and foldable displays, smart product labeling as well as various applications in wearable, healthcare and medical electronics. The circuit design with the emerging flexible thin-film and ultra-thin chip process technologies requires to account also for mechanical strain effects on device characteristics in circuit simulation. The main goal of this webinar is to present principles and practical techniques to extend and customize the TFT and MOSFET SPICE models to account for mechanical strain effects in flexible electronics circuit design and physical verification.

What attendees will learn:

  • Emerging ultra-thin chip, thin-film and hybrid flexible electronics design challenges
  • The physical modeling of mechanical strain effects on semiconductor electronic properties and device characteristics
  • The methodology and practical techniques for:
    • instantiation of arbitrary applied mechanical strain conditions in SPICE netlists
    • extension of TFT SPICE models to account for mechanical strain effects
    • utilization of Open Model Interface (OMI) in customization of standard SPICE models for ultra-thin chip flexible electronics applications
