SEMulator3D Training

February 18 and 26, 2021. Online

This two-day online course uses lectures and hands-on exercises for training on SEMulator3D®. SEMulator3D is a semiconductor and MEMS process modelling software that offers wide-ranging technology development capabilities. It takes input from design data and then follows an integrated process flow description to create the virtual equivalent of the complex 3D structures created in the fab.

This training has two sessions a) Basic or Introductory Session and b) Advanced user session. These training sessions are scheduled for a range of time zones and are separated by few days to better serve our CNDN community.
