CMOS Image Sensors (CIS) are very common opto-electronic devices that appear in numerous consumer devices. Modeling CIS devices requires process, optical and electronic simulations. Synopsys TCAD Sentaurus and RSoft Photonic Device Tools are well-suited for this application.
Synopsys has been a great partner in enabling TowerJazz’s PH18 - the world’s first open foundry Silicon photonics process. Their expertise in both silicon photonics design automation and design has helped us put together a truly differentiated design environment that has been successfully used by several of our mutual customers."
Edward Preisler, PH.D.
Director of Technology Development at TowerJazz
As a design house, we need a complete software framework that supports us in the developments for our customers. Synopsys has the proper tools for modeling and design, circuit simulation and layout that allow us to work in a fast, cohesive and efficient way. We're proud of working with them."
