Get Started

This course introduces the Ansys Lumerical CHARGE solver which can be used for electrical simulation of semiconductor devices inside the finite-element multiphysics environment. A brief description of the solver physics, the different types of simulations supported by the solver, and some real-world application examples for which the CHARGE solver can be used will be also discussed.

Recommended Courses

This course contains useful information about various material models used by the Ansys Lumerical CHARGE solver for electrical simulation. You will also get to know the material database which contains the electrical properties of commonly used materials.

In this course, various simulation objects available in the CHARGE solver such as doping profiles, sources, monitors, and boundary conditions are introduced and the different settings required to set up these objects are briefly reviewed. Also, a number of tips for efficient geometry setup in the Finite Element IDE design environment are provided.

The "My First Simulation" course of the CHARGE Learning Track includes a steady-state simulation performed by the CHARGE solver. This course introduces basic examples of other simulation modes that the CHARGE solver is capable of, including the small-signal AC and transient (time-dependent) simulation modes. It also contains a hands-on demo of small-signal AC and transient simulations of a simple p-i-n diode.
