Todays ULSI chip and transistor technologies have a high degree of concurrency due to the complexity of new, advanced high performance features. This creates challenges for circuit designer who must account for the evolution of the transistor design while developing their chip design. This work describes for the first time a compact model methodology that gives the circuit designer the ability to assess the impact of uncertainty in the transistor design.
