    While PETE doesn’t do anything that cannot be achieved by using different modeling codes, it is an extremely convenient and fast tool. I used it to study hypothetical devices and their affect on circuits. My approach was as follows, assuming that anything is possible I wanted to know which device improvement would benefit circuits the most. As such I dialed in different mobilities, subthreshold slopes, DIBL, threshold voltages and Vdd. Such a sensitivity analysis is very useful in the times of extremely high cost of device development. My only wish is that the circuit part would more open-ended and would allow to import their own critical path circuits.
