Description Circuit designers in analogue design companies can now build simulations of silicon processed that do not yet exist into simulations in order to better design future chips and thus maximise their performance and cost-effectiveness.
Exploitation Route They have been taken forward via SFC funding and now form part of the design cycle for Wolfson Microelectronics (now part of Cirrus).
Sectors Digital/Communication/Information Technologies (including Software),Electronics

Description That deep-sub-microns devices can be modelled atomistically and that the results can be used to develop simple circuit models that chip designers can use.
