Nano-Sim: A Step Wise Equivalent Conductance based Statistical Simulator for Nanotechnology Circuit Design

Bharat Sukhwani, Uday Padmanabhan, Janet M. Wang

New nanotechnology based devices are replacing CMOS devices to overcome CMOS technology's scaling limitations. However, many such devices exhibit non-monotonic I-V characteristics and uncertain properties which lead to the negative differential resistance (NDR) problem and the chaotic performance. This paper proposes a new circuit simulation approach that can effectively simulate nanotechnology devices with uncertain input sources and negative differential resistance (NDR) problem. The experimental results show a 20-30 times speedup comparing with existing simulators.
