1 shows a practical design of a device simulator of 3D TCAD capability with various modules. One may regard the drift-diffusion (DD) equation module as central building block of a 3D TCAD device simulator. Optionally, additional modules to perform quantum mechanical calculations and optical modes computation can be built around the main DD module to enhance the application of the simulation program. This is necessary for special applications of 3D TCAD such as nano-scale MOSFET, laser diodes and integrated photonic circuits.
For convenience, we use carrier flux density and current density interchangeably even though they differ by a factor of electron charge. For hydrodynamic model, the expression for the electron (or hole) current is modified: & ' 2! ! 9) where n1j is the electron concentration when the electron quasi-Fermi level coincides with the energy level Etj of the jth trap. A similar definition applies to p1j. 12) reduce to the familiar SRH formula  under steady state condition. 16) A trap (or recombination center) is completely specified by its density Ntj, capture cross sections snj and spj, and energy level Etj.
45) L ? 5 Impaction Ionization An important application of 3D TCAD is the design of smart high power devices with high breakdown voltages. Therefore, understanding the influence of impact ionization on the breakdown is necessary. 46) where an is the electron ionization rate defined as the number of electron-hole pairs generated by an electron per unit distance traveled; ap is similarly defined for holes. Both an and ap are strongly dependent on the electric field. 46 is somewhat difficult to implement in a drift-diffusion model because it is not directly concerned with the velocity and considers the mobility coefficient instead.
