Abstract

The UK e-Science EPSRC pilot project Meeting the Design Challenges of nanoCMOS Electronics (nanoCMOS-www.nanocmos.ac.uk) was funded to address the challenges facing the global electronics semiconductor industry caused by the decreasing size of Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) transistors and the atomic variability present in devices manifest at these dimensions. Fundamental problems to be addressed include the modelling, understanding and predicting the effect of differences in the atomic structure of devices on their behaviour, and then using this information to guide electronic circuit and system designers who utilise CMOS components. In this paper we describe the e-Infrastru..
