Emerging electronic devices and circuits

Read about our emerging electronic devices and circuits research.

Device-circuit interaction

Device-circuit interaction

We use mixed-mode (TCAD and SPICE) numerical simulations to study the behaviour of electronic circuits which include advanced devices for which compact models have not yet been developed.
