NEEDS has a vision for a new era of electronics that couples the power of billion-transistor CMOS technology with the new capabilities of emerging nano-devices and a charter to create high-quality models and a complete development environment that enables a community of compact model developers.
NEEDS Team: Purdue, MIT, U.C. Berkeley, and Stanford.
NEWEST COMPACT MODEL RELEASE: MVS Nanotransistor Model 2.0, MVS Nanotransistor Model HEMT 1.2, Released Resonant Body Transistor with MIT Virtual Source (RBT-MVS) Model, MIT Virtual Source GaN HEMT-High Voltage (MVSG-HV) compact model, and Thermoelectric device model. See Compact Models Page
