Semiconductor Power-Device Modeling
In this report we describe the institutional setting for the technology and determine the technical impacts of advances in power-device modeling on the affected markets. Section 2 identifies and characterizes technology trends and applications for semiconductor power devices and Section 3 profiles the key industries affected. Technical impacts of mathematical modeling and the barriers to the adoption of mathematical modeling in IGBT design are presented in Sections 4 and 5, respectively. Section 6 discusses NIST’s contribution to mathematical modeling and its impacts on the economy.
