System Plus Consulting has developed a powerful costing tool to calculate the production cost & selling price of power active components and modules:

From IGBT & MOSFET transistors, power diodes to complex power modules

Power Price+ performs the necessary cost simulations to make strategic decisions.

From a short but detailed data input list, with no need for technical expertise, Power Price+ will help you:

  • Negotiate the purchasing price of power discrete components delivered in bare dies or standard package and of complex power modules
  • Identify the best supply sources/costs for power semiconductors and for final assembly
  • Evaluate IGBT, MOSFET and power diodes technologies through yields and costs evolution
  • Calculate the production cost and selling price of a complex power module, depending on foundries, assembly units and manufacturers
  • Evaluate a module packaging technology through a detailed cost analysis, etc.

The reference database includes more than 130 foundries, 60 assembly units and 100 Manufacturers.

PowerPrice+ will model up to:

  • 8 IGBT technologies, in various frequency ranges
  • 6 power MOSFET technologies
  • 4 power diodes technologies, including SiC diodes. Electrical parameters or physical data can be used as input data for semiconductors calculation.

Complete and up-to-date assembly model:

  • Standard discrete packages,
  • DBC relative process and material cost calculation,
  • A model for molded parts manufacturing cost,
  • BOM management including base plate, DBC, power and other chips, filling material and case items like molded parts, busbars, leadframe, etc.

Power_Price_Schema

Power Price+ delivers the following result:

  • Wafer cost breakdown and evolutions
  • Power chip cost breakdown and evolution
  • Molded part cost breakdown and evolution
  • Module cost breakdown
  • Yields versus time
  • Module manufacturing cost versus time
  • Module selling prices versus time.

Do the tools include a component library?
Our Price+ tools do not include any component library but our CoSim+ tools do.

 

How can I learn to use the tools?
All tools include a helper. In Price+ there is a guide available at each step of your work, in each window.
If needed, when you buy one of our tools, you can schedule a one-hour training session via WebEx with our engineers. You can also purchase an on-site training session if needed.

 

Which parameters are absolutely necessary to know how to use the tools?
To use our tools, you will need to know at least the location of the fab, the technology type and node, and die dimension, the manufacturing quantity and the manufacturer.

 

What kind of devices can I simulate with Power Price+?
You can simulate transistors, diodes, thyristors and power modules.

 

Can I simulate the doping step?
Yes, except the concentration. So, Power Price+ considers doping steps with an average cost per mask.

 

Can I simulate the packaging with Power CoSim+ and Power Price+?
Yes, packaging is a part of the manufacturing process and you can simulate it with the tools.

 

Can I simulate modules and discrete devices with Power CoSim+ and Power Price+?
Yes, the power tools can simulate any kind of power device.

 

What kind of substrate can I simulate with Power CoSim+ and Power Price+?
The power tools can simulate any kind of substrates, including silicon and compound semiconductors like SiC and GaN.

 

Can I simulate the epitaxy step with Power CoSim+ and Power Price+?
Yes, you are able to simulate epitaxy with System Plus Consulting power tools.

 

Which voltage level can I simulate with Power CoSim+ and Power Price+?
All of them. You can simulate low, medium and high voltage devices.

 

LICENCE / MAINTENANCE / ORDER

What is the difference between the site license and the corporate license?
The site license is for all employees in just one location. The corporate license is for all employees from the same company worldwide.

 

Once I get the license, do I need to pay something else?
The license includes maintenance for the first year. After the first year, if you wish to keep receiving our support and updates, you will need to pay the maintenance fees only. It will cost between 1,000€ and 3,500€ depending on your license type and tool.

 

Why should I pay for maintenance after the first year? Can I get maintenance for free?
Thanks to the maintenance, you get updates to the tools and database every year. Maintenance also includes support from our team.

The first year, the update is included in the license fees. You don’t have to add any other fee. However, after this first year, you will have to purchase our yearly maintenance to get our tools and database updates.

 

Can I test the tools before buying it?
System Plus Consulting doesn’t provide any trial version but you can schedule a one-hour WebEx demo with the team to get a better understanding of which tool you might need.
