Summary: We consider model order reduction of integrated circuits with semiconductors modeled by modified nodal analysis and drift-diffusion (DD) equations. The DD-equations are discretized in space using a mixed finite element method. This discretization yields a higher-dimensional, nonlinear system of differential-algebraic equations. Proper orthogonal decomposition is used to reduce the dimension of this model. Since the computational complexity of the reduced-order model still depends through the nonlinearity of the DD equations on the number of variables of the full model, we apply the discrete empirical interpolation method to further reduce the computational complexity. We provide numerical comparisons which demonstrate the performance of this approach.
