A new wavelet based non-uniform grid for time domain simulation of active semiconductor devices is presented and a MESFET is simulated using this non-uniform mesh. Non-uniform mesh is implemented and controlled by the wavelet coefficients. A fine mesh can be used where the unknowns are varying rapidly and a coarser mesh where the unknowns are varying slowly. Performance of this method is compared with basic finite difference. A reduction over 80 percent of unknowns in grid with good accuracy in
