The design of electronics as well as the assessment of the performance of electronics relies on circuit- and system-level modeling but this can only be done with the assumption of a small range of performance parameters. Electronic systems are modeled only within the limits of intended signals. Modeling of realistic circuits at the transistor-level, with realistic signals, for realistic times, and for intentionally applied disruptive signals, cannot be undertaken. The typical assumption with radio communication electronics, for example, is to assume steady-state operation so that there is an inherent assumption in design that omits the behavior of electronic circuits and systems to unintended signals that are designed to induce disruption. NC State proposes to develop a modeling and exploration environment that will enable the modeling of the response of electronic systems to intentionally applied disruptive radio signals.
