Simulation of Multi-Technology Micro and Nano Systems
08 Apr 2005 | Presentation Materials | Contributor(s): Karti Mayaram
The simulation of a mixed-technology micro or nano system is an extremely challenging task because of the different types of on-chip components for sensing, actuation, data storage, and information processing. Integrated circuit and device simulators are a promising approach for simulating such systems. These simulators include interfaces to various device-level simulators that provide the solution of device characteristics based on the partial differential equations describing the physical operation of the device (numerical models).
