Modeling and Simulation Frameworks
A key component of our research at ICDL is the development of physics-based and compact models for emerging devices for device-circuit analysis. The technologies that we are currently modeling include charge-based devices, spin devices and steep switching devices. Various models are integrated in a device-circuit simulation framework, which enables us to analyze the circuit implications of the emerging technologies and perform device-circuit co-design for low power robust memories and logic. We are also working on developing a benchmarking framework for new technologies based on extensive circuit and device simulations, which will provide useful insights into their benefits and overheads. More details on our models will be posted soon.
