EZMod3D is a 3D multi-domain physics simulation software tool primarily developed to address Integrated Circuits (IC) and Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) design.
Why a new tool?
EZMod3D is the first tool addressing designers concerns for advanced nodes and complex designs (System/ICs) :
Ease of Use
1. Some concerns are poorly addressed by existing tools.
Substrate parasitic coupling
Thermal coupling (static and dynamic)
EZMod3D brings an efficient and easy to use solution to these concerns, limiting the number of runs and drastically cutting costs and delays.
No need to define complicated tech files or coupling rules. Just define materials properties and layers thickness.
3ML MOM cap (active and parasitic)
EZMod3D uses a 3D finite elements analysis that can reach the required accuracy. Thanks to its unique solving algorithm, it can address relatively large designs. The Record so far was:
Again, no need to define complicated tech files or coupling rules. Just define materials properties and layers thickness.
3. The design flow in use for about 40 years reaches its limits.
Classic Design Flow
It is only at the end of the loop that one can realize there is an issue. Then iterations are required generating delays and costs.
EZMod3D allows parasitic extraction all along the flow from floor plan to leaf cells and even down to components or just only routing, minimizing iterations, saving time and money.
No need for LVS correct to perform an extraction. A GDS defining geometry and pins is sufficient.
For instance, a bus equivalent schematic can be extracted and used for driver design...

5. How does EZMod3D compare to other tools ?
6. EZMod3D is a multi-domain tool
Thanks to the analogy of diffusion equations in different domains, EZMod3D engine can address the following domains:
