A compact model for molecular electronic devices that considers the accumulation of charge on the molecule by an equivalent capacitive charging process which is suitable for transient analyses is presented. The model is used to examine the viability of molecular devices in future electronics applications. Further Monte Carlo simulations are carried out to examine digital behaviour in the face of a statistical spread in device characterising parameters, revealing relatively robust circuit behaviour and showcasing the model's capability to relate fundamental physical constants governing the quantum mechanical behavior of the device to abstract figures of merit.
