Empirical Study of Incorporation of SET and Hybrid CMOS-SET in Decision Making Sub-Systems
Jayanta Gope  | Aloke Raj Sarkar
Abstract: Recent evolution in physics and fabrication technology has led to new horizon in electronics; one such promising candidate is the Single Electronics Technology that attracted huge attention in both academics and industry. It represents a new class of electronics that precisely detect and control the transport of individual electron and thereby create Single Electron Devices for next generation electronics in nano regime. SETs are considered as the next generation electronics for post CMOS VLSI ICs because of unique principle of operation; quantized nature of carrier transport; ultra small size and low power dissipation like intrinsic properties. Researchers now aim to emphasize this technology in every sphere of life. The authors here take this opportunity to employ SETs in designing decision making sub-system which is not only novel in nature but simultaneously very fascinating but challenging act. The designed model is tested using Monte Carlo based simulation tools so that to investigate all possibilities of the decision making. Further its fabrication strategies were analyzed which revealed two significant drawbacks of the SET model. The authors surveyed the possible solutions and hence hybrid CMOS-SET model was considered for designing the same decision making model. The second designed model is unique of its kind because applying hybrid CMOS-SET model for decision making has not been reported much previously. The second model was also empirically tested on T-Spice and subsequently both the results were compared to achieve the best viability.
