|Abstract||In this paper, we describe the development of the Stanford University Carbon Nanotube FET (CNFET) Compact Model. The CNFET Model is a circuit-compatible, compact model which describes enhancement-mode, CMOS-like CNFETs. It can be used to simulate both functionality and performance of large-scale circuits with hundreds of CNFETs. To produce realistic and relevant results, the model accounts for several practical non-idealities such as scattering in the near-ballistic channel, effects of the source/drain extension region, and charge-screening for multiple-nanotube CNFETs. The model also includes a full transcapacitance network for more accurate transient and AC results. The Stanford University CNFET Model is implemented in both HSPICE macro language and VerilogA. The VerilogA implementation shows speedups of roughly 7x∼15x over HSPICE. Applications of the model suggest that n- and p-CNFETs will have 6x and 13x speed advantage over Si n- and p-MOSFETs respectively at the 32nm node, and that a CNT density of 250 CNTs/um is ideal for multiple-nanotube gates. Such a compact CNFET model will be absolutely essential in ushering in the Design Era of CNFET circuits as carbon nanotube technology outgrows its “science discovery” phase.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
