Integrate circuits technology allows creating many types of devices on the silicon die. The most common devices are transistors, diodes, resistors or capacitors. Now, the different kinds of capacitors that could be integrated on-chip are discussed.
Monte Carlo analysis is a statistical way to analyze a circuit. This simulation allows us to test the process variation and mismatching between devices in a single chip or wafer.
Abstract – The applications of electronics require each day greater efficiency of the electronic devices that are used today. Among the most important aspects in production of a chip is the area occupied by the circuit: It is desired that electronic devices occupy the smallest possible space. The technology that is used today to manufacture semiconductor devices is reaching the limits, where it is increasingly difficult to obtain reduction in size without affecting other features of the device. This document shows a bibliographical review on nanotechnology, in order to present a research proposal to implement transistors based on carbon nanotubes.

Real silicon circuits on the dies after the manufacturing process are unfortunately far from behave as an ideal circuit designed on Cadence. This allows do more realistic simulation at the by updating your circuit into a more realistic one based on the physical layout. In this way it is ensured proper functionality of the design and a better representation of the final silicon product behavior.
