We have come to take for granted the ever-increasing performance gains in computational power. Enabled by advances in semiconductor processing techniques, we reap the benefits from exciting new features in everything from smartphones to workstations. The good news for all of us is that the semiconductor industry is steaming ahead, relentlessly pushing the limits of wafer fabrication. Each year, a new generation of sophisticated fabrication equipment is developed. Features etched on silicon are now at the atomic scale. In the quest for smaller-sized circuit features on silicon, the leading provider of wafer fabrication equipment and services, Lam Research Corporation, is leveraging multiphysics simulation. In fact, there is an interesting relationship between development of fabrication equipment to increase integrated circuit transistor density and computer modeling.
