We present a new lattice gas simulation technique for semiclassical semiconductor transport which is comparable in accuracy to Monte Carlo simulations, but is capable of dealing with arbitrarily complex spatial inhomogeneities, nonlinear dynamical effects and carrier instabilities with only a minimal additional cost in computer time, and runs orders of magnitude faster on parallel hardware.
