AdCom Meeting Report

8 Dec. 2002

San Francisco Hilton & Towers Hotel
San Francisco

The Compact Modeling Committee Chair discussed a twelve-page report.  Significant points of the presentation included:
  • Narain Arora reported that the Compact Modeling Committee started in 2001, and it currently has about 8 active committee members.  Their main focus is to promote interaction among Compact Modeling developers, technology developers, and circuit designers and to objectively identify, examine and evaluate current compact models for circuit simulations.

  • As a committee, they have begun to make progress regarding an on-line Journal of Compact Modeling for Circuit Simulation, which would focus on devices and interconnects and to be industry oriented.  There would be no peer review with the journal, but all its submission would be reviewed by the Compact Modeling Committee members before archiving and be issued four times a year.  In addition, a workshop was held in Puerto Rico in 2002 for the first time and a FSA Workshop was held in September on device and interconnects.
