Abstract : The report deals with the application of the point relaxation method for the numerical solution of Laplace's or Poisson's equations in multi-dielectric regions in semiconductor integrated circuits. In particular, the type of geometry considered in this report is a rectangular or square region whose boundary potentials may or may not be specified, with a dielectric interface parallel to one of the boundaries. This type of problem is very difficult to solve analytically and yet it is an important problem in planar integrated circuit analysis. The structure is essentially the same as the oxide over silicon or as the junction regions in such a device. Often the electrical field or the static temperature distribution of such regions are required and the research described in this report provides a technique for determining such information.
