Keywords: power semiconductor devices, device modeling, circuit simulation, hardware description languages

Due to their specific structures the power devices need special models different from those developed for low power electronics. The development of such special models is far from being simple as distributed nature of phenomena often determinates the dynamic response of the device. In this paper several modeling techniques will be discussed. These include the usage of the hardware description languages as well as of software developed at the Department of Microelectronics and Computer Science, which includes the 2D device simulator MOPS and the distributed model in VHDL-AMS language.
