Q&A

Dr.-Ing. Franz Sischka, 


Franz Sischka studied electronic communication engineering at the University of Stuttgart,
Germany, where he received his Diplom-Ingenieur and Dr.-Ing. (Ph.D.) degrees in 1979 and
1984. After joining Hewlett-Packard in Boeblingen/Germany, he worked for 5 years in R&D

in the Boeblingen Instruments Division, fiber optics group.


From 1989 to 2012, he worked as consultant for HP/Agilent-EEsof's device modeling

software IC-CAP. During that time, he has developed several modeling strategies for diodes, bipolar and GaAs/GaN transistors, as well as for passive components like spiral inductors,capacitors, and also methods to verify the measurement quality before applying device modeling. During this time, he has organized over10 IC-CAP User Meetings in Europe, and is the author of a big part of the examples directory in the Agilent/Keysight IC-CAP software. He also developed and lectured the IC- CAP Learning Week workshops in Europe, and is the author of Agilent's (now Keysight) ICCAP Modeling Handbook
