Analysis and Design of MOSFETs: Modeling, Simulation, and Parameter Extraction, extensively referenced, and containing more than 180 illustrations, is an innovative and integral new book on MOSFETs design technology.
A reprint of the classic text, this book popularized compact modeling of electronic and semiconductor devices and components for college and graduate-school classrooms, and manufacturing engineering, over a decade ago. The first comprehensive book on MOS transistor compact modeling, it was the most cited among similar books in the area and remains the most frequently cited today. The coverage is device-physics based and continues to be relevant to the latest advances in MOS transistor modeling. This is also the only book that discusses in detail how to measure device model parameters required for circuit simulations.
The book deals with the MOS Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) models that are derived from basic semiconductor theory. Various models are developed, ranging from simple to more sophisticated models that take into account new physical effects observed in submicron transistors used in today''s (1993) MOS VLSI technology. The assumptions used to arrive at the models are emphasized so that the accuracy of the models in describing the device characteristics are clearly understood. Due to the importance of designing reliable circuits, device reliability models are also covered. Understanding these models is essential when designing circuits for state-of-the-art MOS ICs.Contents: OverviewReview of Basic Semiconductor and pn Junction TheoryMOS Transistor Structure and OperationMOS CapacitorThreshold VoltageMOSFET DC ModelDynamic ModelModeling Hot-Carrier EffectsData Acquisition and Model Parameter MeasurementsModel Parameter Extraction Using Optimization MethodSPICE Diode and MOSFET Models and Their ParametersStatistical Modeling and Worst-Case Design Parameters
Readership: Integrated circuit chip designers, device model developers and circuit simulators.
Comprised of eight chapters, this volume begins with a general picture of MOS technology development from the device and processing points of view. The critical issue of hot-carrier effects is discussed, along with the device engineering aspects of this problem; the emerging low-temperature MOS technology; and the problem of latchup in scaled MOS circuits. Several device models that are suitable for use in circuit simulators are also described. The last chapter examines novel electron transport effects observed in ultra-small MOS structures.
This book should prove useful to semiconductor engineers involved in different aspects of MOS technology development, as well as for researchers in this field and students of the corresponding disciplines.
The volume begins with an introductory chapter that discusses the microelectronics revolution of the 20th century. Then Chapter 2 puts focus on the CMOS devices and circuit background, discussing CMOS capacitors and field effect transistors. Metallization topics and concepts are covered in Chapter 3, while isolation techniques are tackled in Chapter 4. Long-term reliability of CMOS is the topic covered in Chapter 5. Finally, the ability of semiconductor technology to yield circuits is discussed in Chapter 6.
The book is particularly addressed to engineers, scientists, and technical managers.
