Photoelectric Laser Stimulation of Combinational Logic
- this repository contains models used to derive behaviour of Majority Voter under Photoelectric Laser Stimulation (PLS)
- in paper [A], we argue, that PLS may be used to obtain bits stored in register protected by Voter under PLS
- in paper [B], the data dependency of CMOS logic power consumption under PLS is described
- this work is based on models defined in referenced papers
- ngSPICE is required for netlists simulation
- models.lib file:
- contains circuit models used for simulation of PLS
- tests directory:
- contains tests for particular (sub)circuits
- majorityVoter directory:
- contains SPICE model of the Conventional majority voter in 180 nm TSMC technology and scripts used for simulation of voter under PLS
- gates directory:
- contains tests for gate standard cells in 180 nm TSMC technology and scripts used for simulations under varying conditions
- C17 directory:
- contains SPICE model of the C17 circuit in 180 nm TSMC technology and scripts used for simulation of C17 under PLS
- Transistor models, which are ready-for-simulation are:
