In this paper, we apply our earlier proposed parallel and adaptive triangular mesh simulation technique for the numerical solution of a generalized quantum correction drift diffusion (DD) model. We solve the 2D DD equations coupled with a generalized Hänsch model for a nanoscale N-MOSFET device. This novel simulation based on adaptive triangular mesh, finite volume, monotone iterative, and posteriori error estimation methods, is developed and successfully implemented on a 16-PCs Linux-cluster with the message passing interface library. The generalized quantum correction DD model can be utilized to study the quantization effects of nanoscale MOSFET devices within the inversion layer. Our solution strategy fully exploits the inherent parallelism of the monotone iterative method and nonlinear property of the quantum correction DD equations on a Linux-cluster system. Numerical results for a 100 nm N-MOSFET device are presented to show the robustness and efficiency of the method. The achieved parallel performance demonstrates an excellent speedup with respect to the number of processors.
