Design Technology Co-Optimization (DTCO) has been the workhorse in optimizing logic technology innovations.

The increased complexity associated with each new node and the growing number of technological innovations require expanding DTCO beyond its current limits. Applied Materials’ novel Materials to Systems and Systems to Materials Co-Optimization (MSCO) platform expands the boundaries of traditional DTCO to encompass materials modeling all the way to system design.

MSCO Features and Benefits:

Seamless platform for PPACt assessment from Materials to Systems Modeling for Materials, Unit/Integrated process, device architectures and design rules
Calibrated tradeoff analysis at each stage for rapid MSCO cycles that includes TCAD modeling, Design Rule and Standard Cell library generation
