Pages: 457 - 460

Keywords: device simulation, cellular automata, Monte Carlo, full-band, 3D Poisson solver, multi-grid Method

We report on the modeling of ultra-small MOS devices using a newly developed full band device simulator. The simulation tool is based on a novel approach, featuring a hybrid Monte-Carlo/Cellular Automata simulation engine self-consistently coupled with a 2D and 3D multi-grid Poisson solver.
