The Breit-Wigner resonance formula is used to model a class of molecular electronic devices, in order to establish an abstract model for exploration of their applicability in future nanoelectronic systems. The model is used to characterize molecular device I-V curves in terms of the coupling between the molecule and the leads, and demonstrate digital circuit functionality. Circuit metrics such as noise margin, speed and power are investigated.
