    The progressing development of big data and mobility applications as well as of the Internet of Things requires the further miniaturization of electronic circuits. Sophisticated manufacturing techniques for computer chips, such as the sequential 3D integration of devices, are a key to success. In addition to experimental investigations, the use of simulation programs is of particular importance: Simulations allow significant cost and time savings in the development of new technologies and devices. The improvement of simulation tools is therefore the key focus of the EU project MUNDFAB („Modeling Unconventional Nanoscaled Device FABrication“) coordinated by Fraunhofer IISB (Erlangen, Germany).

    In the joint project SYNERGIE, researchers from Fraunhofer IISB in Erlangen, Germany, together with industrial partners AlzChem AG and Wacker AG, investigated how metallic impurities are caused during the manufacturing of multicrystalline silicon blocks. The results of the SYNERGIE project now allow direct predictions as to how the purity of the auxiliary materials used in the production process affects the electrical quality of the end products.
