Agilent Technologies Inc. announced plans to expand the company's investment in its Integrated Circuit Characterization and Analysis Program (IC-CAP) device modeling software. The company will also establish a new R&D modeling center in Asia to better serve the industry's semiconductor foundries and to respond to advancements in CMOS modeling in particular.

"We've seen several leading semiconductor foundries choose IC-CAP because they want a device-modeling platform that keeps pace with CMOS technology advances. We're increasing our investment in this important area by adding key engineering talent in Asia, where we can work closely with these foundries," said Jim McGillivary, general manager with Agilent's EEsof EDA division.

According to the company, IC-CAP provides characterization and analysis capabilities for semiconductor modeling processes, including instrument control, data acquisition, graphical analysis, simulation, optimization and statistical analysis. IC-CAP is the first device modeling software platform to include a comprehensive extraction methodology for all three of the standard CMOS device models: BSIM3, BSIM4 and PSP, giving designers the ability to use current extraction processes and move to the next-generation model within a single software environment.
