Multiscale Design Enabling Modeling (MDM)

NTX development is hindered by both technology limitations and limited availability of modelling and design tools covering an extremely large range of spatial and time scales. MDM’s goal is the investigation, modelling and design of a new generation of integrated, smart, multi-functional materials, devices, circuits and systems. This requires a bridge across the gap between nano-science theoretical foundations and the implementation of advanced numerical tools. Being inter-leaved with the modeling, system architecture by design (SAD) constitutes the engineering paradigm on which the framework, as well as several current and innovative design methods and algorithms, can be merged to enable the design/optimization of engineering NTX systems. SAD involves task-oriented design, definition, and integration of Nanoarchitectronic system components to achieve desired performance with minimum costs, maximum scalability and optimal reconfigurability.
