    Abstract

    We present a detailed discussion, critical tests and applications of a new lattice gas simulation technique for high field transport in semiconductors. This method may be viewed as a variant of the ensembie Monte Carlo technique but can easily handle ensembles with more than $10^5$ partides, can efficiently deal with complex geometries and achieves speed-up’s on multi-processor computers which scale linearly with the number of processors. Stationary and transient transport properties of Si and GaAs which have been calculated with this new technique compare very favorably with standard Monte Carlo results.
