AdCom Meeting Report

Mirasierra Suites Hotel
Madrid, Spain

  • Narain reported that the Compact Modeling Committee was formed in 2001 to promote interaction among compact model (CM) developers, technology developers, and circuit designers and to objectively identify, examine and evaluate current compact models for circuit simulations.  Recent activities of the committee include the Workshop on Compact Modeling in Boston during March 2004, which included 80 participants and 12 invited papers.  Additionally, a half-day Symposium on Compact Modeling that was held in Santa Clara on 7 May 2004 in collaboration with SCV-EDS Chapter, in which different types of MOS/interconnect models were covered.  Also, the committee is progressing on possibly putting together an on-line journal on compact modeling.  The journal would be industry oriented and would not have any peer review but would be reviewed by Compact Modeling Committee members before archiving and would have three issues a years.
