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.

As a default Cadence has a non-user friendly text editor, but to code, we need to use another one like gedit. gedit is a small and lightweight text editor that allow you to highlight the text.
What is better to program a Linux program running in a board or a bare metal application? Nowadays embedded Linux systems are everywhere, literally EVERYWHERE. For example, smartphones (Android), TVs, vending machines, dataphones, GPSs, domotic houses, etc But… is embedded Linux always the best option for electronic devices? What are the advantages or drawbacks of embedded Linux? [Read more…] about Difference between running a Bare Metal vs. Embedded Linux applications
Plotting data in real time is a very useful task that could be tough, but using the tool KST, I will show how easy it is. The front end look very professional and clean to present your project. KST is a very powerfull and robust solution for plotting live “streaming” data.
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.
