I'm not sure what you mean. I know pre-MIPT xCalibrate supported conformal layers (2007 and earlier), and I just checked and the current MIPT-based version (2013.3) still does: see the documentation for the dielectric keyword at http://supportnet.mentor.com/docs/201307080/docs/htmldocs/mgchelp.htm#context=xcalibrat_batch_user&id=73&tag=472276 . You would specify conformal under the "diel_type" parameter. Examples 1 and 2 in the manual both include conformal layers.
Do you mean something other than conformal dielectrics? Or is there something about conformal dielectrics that xCalibrate isn't correctly modeling?
Hi samantha lizak
thank you for your reply.
i could not have logged in Supportnet.(i think there was a system error(?))
i meant a conformal dielectric layer just under a conductor layer.(and the conductor layer on the conformal dielectric layer will be also conformal.)
Every conductor layer only can be on the planar dielectric layer in xCalibrate.
it doesn't make sense in flat panel model.
If you would like to have an enhancement request, it might be best to work directly with someone in customer support. Can you do this?
I can do it, and already did it years ago.
no reply from Mentor and no more effort i could have made.
but it is seriously needed to use xACT (or any field solver based extraction tool) on the flat panel display now.
there is no CMP in display fabrication....
