The simulation of complex problems in the field of plasma deposition technology requires the usage of parallel code running on modern multicore architectures. The inhouse developed Particle-in-Cell Monte-Carlo (PIC-MC) simulation environment has recently been ported from PVM towards MPI, which is the de-facto standard for parallelization by message passing. We measured a shorter latency time of MPI in comparison with PVM and determined the impact on the PIC-MC performance.
