In January 2009, GSA merged its  efforts with MOS-AK, a well-known industry compact modeling volunteer group primarily focused in Europe, to re-activate its Modeling Working Group. In April 2010, the  MOS-AK/GSA Modeling Working Group then merged its efforts with GSA’s MS/RF Model Working Group. Its purpose, initiatives and  deliverables coincide with  MOS-AK’s purpose, initiatives and deliverables as outlined below.


To play a central role in developing a common language among foundries, CAD vendors, IC designers and model developers by contributing and promoting different elements of compact model standardization and related tools for model development, validation/implementation and distribution.


To Connect:

  • Encourage interaction and sharing of all information related to compact modeling at all levels of the device and circuit characterization, modeling and simulations. The Group aspires to build a community with global connections by:
    • Promoting standardization of compact models and its implementation into software tools
    • Connecting national and local modeling groups
    • Building strong bilateral ties with similar organizations around the world

To Benchmark:

  • Conduct regular meetings with industry players and academia to exchange information on the strengths and weaknesses of the industrialization of compact models. Activities include:
    • Drafting of standards and providing a center of competence for engineers, designers, managers and decision makers
    • Evaluating worldwide best practices and success stories
    • Delivering a comprehensive view of compact modeling education

To Educate:

  • The Group believes that the transfer of advanced compact modeling methodologies to the industry can be accelerated by providing comprehensive reports and reference papers on the subjects of:
    • Basic issues and concepts of device characterization and compact modeling
    • Global device characterization and compact modeling issues
    • Examples and analysis of best practice of the commercialization of compact models
