HiSIM: Hiroshima-University STARC IGFET Model

HiSIM refers to a family of compact models for integrated devices with a MOSFET core. The HiSIM models are based on a complete surface potential description. 



Overview of the HiSIM Compact Model Family

Four members of the HiSIM family have been selected as international industry standards by the Compact Model Coalition (CMC).
HiSIM-HV  (1st standard-version release in January 2009) : High-Voltage MOS-Device Model Standard
HiSIM2 (1st standard-version release in April 2011) : 2nd Generation MOSFET Model Standard
HiSIM-SOI  (1st standard-version release in July 2012) :  Surface-Potential SOI-MOSFET Model Standard
HiSIM-SOTB  (1st standard-version release in December 2014) :  Surface-Potential-Based Model Standard for SOI-MOSFET with Thin Silicon and BOX Layers as well as Multi-Gate MOSFETs
