Virtual platform (ViP), or ESL (Electronic System Level) simulation model, is one of the most widely renowned system level design techniques. In this paper, we present a case study of creating and applying the ViP in the development of a new hard disk system called Hybrid-HDD that is one of the main features in the Windows VISTA (R). First, we summarize how(More)
A series of p- and n-GaAs-S-C(n)H(2n+1) || Hg junctions are prepared, and the electronic transport through them is measured. From current-voltage measurements, we find that, for n-GaAs, transport occurs by both thermionic emission and tunneling, with the former dominating at low forward bias and the latter dominating at higher forward bias. For p-GaAs,(More)
Organic thin-film transistors using pentacene as the semiconductor were fabricated on silicon. A series of phosphonate-based self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) was used as a buffer between the silicon dioxide gate dielectric and the active pentacene channel region. Octadecylphosphonate, (quarterthiophene)phosphonate, and (9-anthracene)phosphonate SAMs were(More)
Modern electronics is based on the ability to dope semiconductors , that is, to purposely introduce small amounts of impurities to control the electronic properties of the material. A similar approach is used in organic electronics, although impurity concentrations are generally significantly higher than those used for materials such as Si and GaAs. The(More)
Diodes made by (indirectly) evaporating Au on a monolayer of molecules that are adsorbed chemically onto GaAs, via either disulfide or dicarboxylate groups, show roughly linear but opposite dependence of their effective barrier height on the dipole moment of the molecules. We explain this by Au-molecule (electrical) interactions not only with the exposed(More)
