Simulation of Amorphous Silicon microelectronic devices gives rise to a system of coupled non-linear partial differential equations with memory terms. In this paper we discuss semidiscrete finite element approximation schemes employed for the numerical discretization of such systems. Existence, uniqueness and error analysis are presented.
