HiSIM: Hiroshima-University STARC IGFET Model

HiSIM refers to a family of compact models for integrated devices with a MOSFET core. The HiSIM models are based on a complete surface potential description. 




The 4th International Symposium on Devices, Circuits and Systems (ISDCS 2021)
to be held online, from 3 to 5 March, 2021.





Overview of the HiSIM Compact Model Family

Four members of the HiSIM family have been selected as international industry standards by the Compact Model Coalition (CMC).
HiSIM-HV  (1st standard-version release in January 2009) : High-Voltage MOS-Device Model Standard
HiSIM2 (1st standard-version release in April 2011) : 2nd Generation MOSFET Model Standard
HiSIM-SOI  (1st standard-version release in July 2012) :  Surface-Potential SOI-MOSFET Model Standard
HiSIM-SOTB  (1st standard-version release in December 2014) :  Surface-Potential-Based Model Standard for SOI-MOSFET with Thin Silicon and BOX Layers as well as Multi-Gate MOSFETs
