HICUM stands for HIgh CUrrent Model and targets the design of bipolar transistor circuits at high-frequencies and high-current densities using a wide range of Si, SiGe or III-V based process technologies. HICUM/L2 is an advanced physics-based compact model that contains accurate formulations of all known physical effects, enables geometry scaling and statistical modeling, and covers a wide temperature, operating and frequency range.
MEXTRAM is an advanced compact model for the description of bipolar transistors. It contains many features that the widely-used Gummel-Poon model lacks. Mextram can be used for advanced processes like double-poly or even SiGe transistors, for high-voltage power devices, and even for uncommon situations like lateral NPN-transistors in LDMOS technology. 2b1af7f3a8
