Take advantage of the low-power consumption and enhanced functionality of SETs (single electron transistors) along with the high-speed driving and voltage gain of CMSO technology. This cutting-edge resource provides you with the conceptual framework for CMSO-SET hybrid circuit design. Supported with over 180 illustrations and packaged with a CD-ROM of practical supplementary material, the book explains spice simulation of SETs and co-simulation with CMOS, introduces specific design strategies for hybrid CMOS-SET circuits, and presents CMOS-SET co-fabrication techniques.
You gain a thorough understanding of the pros and cons of digital SETs, learn how SETs can help to solve the intrinsic drawbacks of CMOS technology, and discover how the hybridization of both technologies can produce new analog functionalities which are difficult to achieve in a pure CMOS approach. From the basic physics of single electron transistors and SET modeling, to advanced concepts like CMSO-SET co-integration, the book helps you realize significant performance benefits by showing you how to incorporate SET technology into your design projects.
CD-ROM contains SET analytical model MIB coded in C++, MATLAB and Verilog-A language, allowing you to co-simulate and co-design hybrid CMOS-SET circuits. Numerous circuit examples are also provided.
