This paper introduces the ensemble Monte Carlo (EMC) method to study the time behavior of single-electron-based logic gates. The method is then applied to a buffer-inverter gate and the results are examined. An analytical model for time behavior at the low-temperature limit is then introduced and its results are compared with those of the EMC. Finally, a compact model for the delay-error behavior of the buffer gate is introduced.
