A new two-dimensional self-consistent Monte-Carlo simulator including the multi sub-band transport in a 2D electron gas is described and applied to an ultra-thin Double Gate MOSFET. This approach takes into account both out of equilibrium transport and quantization effects. This method improves significantly microscopic insight into the operation of deep sub-100 nm CMOS devices. We analyze the ballistic, quantization and roughness effects in a 12 nm-long DGMOS transistor. In particular, we focus on the link between non-stationary transport and the evolution of sub-band occupancy along the channel.
