Example 1 - Calculation of the Threshold Voltage Find the threshold voltage and body factor for an n-channel transistor with an n+ silicon gate if tox = 200 , NA = 3 1016 cm -3, gate doping, ND = 4 1019 cm -3, and if the positively-charged ions at the oxide-silicon interface per area is 10 10 cm-2. Solution From above, F(substrate) is given as

F(substrate) = 0.0259 ln

3 10 16 = 0.377 V 1 0 1.45 1 0

The equilibrium electrostatic potential for the n+ polysilicon gate is found from as

F(gate) = 0.0259 ln

4 10 1 9 = 0.563 V 1.45 10 1 0

Therefore, the potential MS is found to be

F(substrate) F(gate) = 0.940 V.

Example 2 - Small-Signal Load Resistance Find the small signal resistance of the MOS diode shown using the parameters of Table 3.2-1. Assume that the W/L ratio is 10m/1m. Solution If we are going to include the bulk effect, we must first find the dc value of the bulk-source voltage. Unfortunately, we do not know the threshold voltage because the bulk-source voltage is unknown. The best approach is to ignore the bulk-source voltage, find the gate-source voltage and then iterate if necessary. VGS =

VDD = 5V

Fig. 4.2-5

2I 2100 + V = + 0.7 = 1.126V T 0 11010 Thus let us guess at a gate-source voltage of 1.3V (to account for the bulk effect) and calculate the resulting gate-source voltage. V T = V T 0 + 2| F | - (-3.7) - 2|F| = 0.7 + 0.4 0.7+3.7 - 0.4 0.7 = 1.20V VGS = 1.63V Now refine our guess at VGS as 1.6V and repeat the above to get VT = 1.175V which gives VGS = 1.60V. Therefore, V BS = -3.4V.

SHORT-CHANNEL MOSFET MODEL Velocity Saturation The most important short-channel effect in MOSFETs is the velocity saturation of carriers in the channel. A plot of electron drift velocity versus electric field is shown below.

An expression for the electron drift velocity as a function of the electric field is, nE v d 1 + E/E c where vd = electron drift velocity (m/s) n = low-field mobility ( 0.07m2/Vs) Ec = critical electrical field at which velocity saturation occurs

L vD S 1 d v iD 1 + dy = WQ I(y) ndv Ec dy 0 0

E iD 1 + E = WQ I(y)nE C

The result of this integration is, nCox W K W 2] = [2( v V ) v v [2(vGS - V T )vDS - vDS 2] iD = GS T DS DS L 2[1 + ( v V )] L v GS T 1 D S 2 1 + E L c where = 1/LEc with dimensions of V-1. The saturation voltage has not changed so substituting for vDS by vGS-VT gives, K W iD = 2[1 + ( v - V )] L [ vGS - V T ]2 GS T Note that the transistor will enter the saturation region for vDS < vGS - VT in the presence of velocity saturation.

We know that KW iD = 2 L (v GS -V T )2 and v GS = v GS + iD RSX Substituting vGS into the current relationship gives, KW iD = 2 L (v GS - iD R SX -V T )2 Solving for iD results in, iD = K W 21 + K L R SX ( v GS - V T ) W (v GS - V T )2 L

Comparing with the previous result, we see that W 1 L = K L R SX R SX = = E KW KW c Therefore for K = 110A/V2, W = 1m and Ec = 1.5x106V/m, we get RXS = 6.06k .

SUBSTRATE CURRENT FLOW IN MOSFETS Impact Ionization Impact Ionization: Occurs because high electric fields cause an impact which generates a hole-electron pair. The electrons flow out the drain and the holes flow into the substrate causing a substrate current flow. Illustration:
