Technology Computer Aided Design




      The objective of the Technology Computer-Aided Design (TCAD) Committee is to promote the interests of all stakeholders in the TCAD community. We want to 

-        - Highlight TCAD as an essential part of semiconductor technology development.


-        - Maximize the quality of TCAD and its ability to make predictions about future devices of interest to industry


-         -Enable successful careers in TCAD from the undergraduate level to senior TCAD engineer or researcher


-        - Build a cohesive community including all stakeholders (academia, developers of TCAD codes, and industrial end users)



Members are volunteers who serve for a two-year renewable term at the invitation of the committee chair. Membership is limited to two consecutive terms so that new ideas can be generated, incorporated, and executed.


In 2000,  an exciting time for TCAD,  this  technical committee was formed to promote and advocate for TCAD.  The first chairman was Professor Mark Law and there were 13 initial committee members.
