A study on global and local optimization techniques for TCAD analysis tasks

  title={A study on global and local optimization techniques for TCAD analysis tasks},
  author={Thomas Binder and Clemens Heitzinger and Siegfried Selberherr},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems},
We evaluate optimization techniques to reduce the necessary user interaction for inverse modeling applications as they are used in the technology computer-aided design field. Four optimization strategies are compared. Two well-known global optimization methods, simulated annealing and genetic optimization, a local gradient-based optimization strategy, and a combination of a local and a global method. We rate the applicability of each method in terms of the minimal achievable target value for a… CONTINUE READING
