Abstract : This paper investigates the possibility of accelerating the transient simulation of Metal Oxide Semiconductor devices by using waveform relaxation. Standard spatial discretization techniques are used to generate a large, sparsely-connected system of algebraic and ordinary differential equations in time. The waveform relaxation (WR) algorithm for solving such a system is described, and several theoretical results that characterize the convergence of WR for device simulation are given. In addition, one-dimensional experimental results are presented.
