“We see a strong synergy between our modelling capability and Lam’s desire to enable virtual experimentation of process development for customers and within its business units,” said Mike Jamiolkowski, president and CEO of Coventor, in a statement.

Coventor’s 3D material simulation capability allows technology developers and manufacturers to understand process variation effects early in the development timeframe and reduce the number of silicon learning cycles required to bring a successful product to market.

“Together, our collective goal is to deliver more simulation, more virtual fabrication, and an overall increase in computational techniques to support the development of next-generation transistors, memories, MEMS and IoT devices,” said Rick Gottscho, corporate chief technical officer of Lam Research.

“We are looking forward to Coventor being a part of Lam and increasing the value and contribution we jointly provide to our customers,” said. “To keep pace with future design requirements, new technologies such as virtual fabrication and processing will be crucial to improve time to market.
