{ In this work we describe a methodology for solving the basic set of state stationary semiconductor device equations. We present a new iterative method for the solution using nite elements of the non linear Poisson equation and use a Conjugate Gradient type method for solving the non symmetric continuity equations. The parallelization of this approach and its projection onto a multiprocessor system with a hypercube topology are carried out. We study the distribution of an irregular mesh of… CONTINUE READING
