System Plus Consulting has developed a powerful cost simulation tool to evaluate the cost of any Power Semiconductor, process, device or module:

From Si Diode, MOSFET or IGBT to SiC or GaN devices.

Power CoSim+ is a process-based costing tool used to evaluate the manufacturing cost per wafer using your own inputs or using the pre-defined parameters included in the tool.

It is possible to enter any semiconductor process flow.

Power CoSim+ includes a comprehensive database:

  • Equipment
  • Substrates
  • Materials
  • Waferfab units
  • Assembly units

It is a powerful and complete module cost simulation tool featuring:

  • Highly flexible anduser-friendly hierarchical view where each process step can be moved, modified or deleted
  • Multiple process flows:

– Hierarchical description for multiple dies from different technologies or processes
– Simulating cost according to different conditions (region, cleanroom , process, etc.)

  • Two calculation modes: for dedicated fabs and non-dedicated fabs
  • Integrated equipment, wafer & materials databases
  • An unlimited number of process steps or process flows to store in libraries
  • Up to five simultaneous scenarios allowing the user to run sensitivity analysis and compare results like yield improvement, manufacturing location impact on cost, etc
  • Multiple subcontracting operations: costs of usually externalized operations can be precisely evaluated by setting their individual regional and commercial parameters.



New version:

  • Multiple processes in one device (front side, back side,…)
  • Back-end process simulation
  • Semi-automatic process update if wafer size is changed
  • Unlimited number of materials used at each step
  • Assembly units database

An optional power process library and components library are available for Si MOSFET, IGBT, Diode, SiC devices…

Do the tools include a component library?
The standard package doesn’t include a component library. But, you can add a component library with additional charges.


Do the tools include a process library?
The standard package doesn’t include any process library. But, you can add a process library with additional charges.


Since I have to detail all the process steps, do I get cost details at each step of the process?
Yes, our CoSim+ tools will provide you cost details at each step of the process.


How many process steps can I add to simulate my cost?
You can add unlimited process steps.


How can I learn to use the tools?
All tools include a helper. In CoSim+, you have a PDF file to guide you.
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.


What kind of devices can I simulate with Power CoSim+?
All of them, including discretes, modules and SiC or GaN devices.


Can I simulate the doping step?
Yes, the doping step is taken into account in Power CoSim+. You can even simulate the quantity.


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.



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.
