Landauer Approach to Thermoelectrics
23 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Changwook Jeong
Many efforts have been made to search for materials that maximize the thermoelectric (TE) figure of merit, ZT, but for decades, the improvement has been limited because of the interdependent material parameters that determine ZT. Recently, several breakthroughs have been reported by applying...
Guidelines for Writing NEEDS-certified Verilog-A Compact Models
19 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Tianshi Wang, Jaijeet Roychowdhury
This talk contains a brief introduction to Verilog-A and suggests some initial guidelines for writing Verilog-A versions of NEEDS models. For more about the history of Verilog-A and additional guidelines for writing Verilog-A models, see the presentation by Drs. Geoffrey Coram and Colin McAndrew.
Introduction to Compact Models and Circuit Simulation
The presentation is a gentle introduction to compact models, basic circuit simulation concepts, and flows for developing compact models. The roadmap for the NEEDS-SPICE platform, being developed to ease the process of developing simulation-ready compact models for novel nanodevices, is briefly...
