Nanoelectronic Coupled Problems Solutions

The fp7-nanoCOPS project addresses the simulation of

  • Power-MOS devices, with applications in energy harvesting, that involve couplings between electromagnetics (EM), heat, and stress, and
  • RF-circuitries in wireless communication, which involves EM-circuit-heat coupling and multirate behaviour, together with analogue-digital signals.

The research and development within fp7-nanoCOPS aims to

  • create efficient and robust simulation techniques for strongly coupled systems, that exploit the different dynamics of sub-systems and that allow designers to predict reliability and ageing
  • include a variability capability such that robust design and optimization, worst case analysis, and yield estimation with tiny failures are possible (including large deviations like 6-sigma)
  • reduce the complexity of the sub-systems while ensuring that the parameters can still be varied and that the reduced models offer higher abstraction models that are efficient to simulate
