At weak inversion and small geometry the channel charge can be single carrier or few carriers. Random dopant density variation becomes a problem. I believe this question wants data, not generalizations. Other than the usual "more area is better", which is true but not entirely useful because you really want to know the point of diminishing
Due to several physical effects (VS = velocity saturation, VFMR = vertical field mobility reduction, CLM = channel length modulation, DIBL = drain induced barrier lowering) these effects exert varying impacts on the transistor characteristics. The first 3 mentioned effects are important mostly in strong inversion operation (VS acting mainly on shor
in mosfet, this effect is referred to as channel length modulation. after Vds exceeds Vgs - Vt , the layer of inversion charge near to the drain disappears and we say that the channel has pinched off. Further increase in Vds will cause the layer of the inversion charge in the channel to shrink away from the (...)
In a band when fermi level crosses the intrinsic level due to application of voltage (bending) inversion takes place. A p type channel device has the fermi level below the intrinsic level. Due to application of gate voltage the band bends upward and eventually crosses the intrinsic level. In that condition it has a fermi level above intrinsic le
As Vds increases to be equal to Vgs-Vt, the inversion layer density at the drain end of the channel becomes zero and channel becomes pinch off. As Vds increases above Vgs-Vt the length of pinch off region increases and while that of inversion layer decreases (You must be knowing channel length modulation). (...)
With decreasing L, γ in channel thermal noise formula increased to about 2~3. However, we don't know the γ value in SpecteRF simulation. If simulation tool uses BSIM3 model, the thermal noise model based on inversion channel charge is used, and no parameter like γ can be found. So the problem is if I want to increase the (...)
Say V(S)=V(D)=0, VGS>VTH. My doubt is : What forms the channel? Are the electrons that form the inversion layer generated by EHP in the substrate? or they are injected from the source? I didnt find the exact answer in any text book. Please help.
This matrix is usually used for mathematical analysis which reveals the BEST results under some assumptions. In real implementation adaptive algorithoms are more attractive which avoids matrix calculation and inversion.
The narrow width effect comes from STI isolation. The sharp corners formed by STI create a high electric field that leads to the formation of inversion charges; hence a lower voltage is needed to form the channel leading to a lower threshold voltage
I feel it because of the easy fabrication of enhancement mode MOS.You see in both depletion MOS and JFET there is a channel formed when the device is manufactured but it is not the case for a enhancement is formed when Vgs=Vt(due to inversion).Thus you don't need to create a channel by yourself for the (...)
Hi, This question may suite to people working on MIMO communication. What are the drawback / shortcomings of the channel inversion (Zero Forcing Beam Forming ZFBF) in MIMO Downlink communication? BR, MAK
for a NMOS, if you would like to get a strong inversion region below its gate, the mimimun gate voltage is the threshold voltage. if the gate voltage become larger than the threshold voltage, the channel resistance become smaller, and the drain current will become larger. in short , the drain current is produced by overdrive voltage and the drain
1. NMOS --> gate to VCC, other three nodes to VSS (inversion) This is not bad, as long as VCC is significantly above the n-channel threshold voltage. As you approach a Vt, the capacitance will drop. 2. PMOS --> gate to VCC, other three nodes to VSS (accumulation) This is actually not in accumulation - the p-channel is in depl
Hi all, Please see the following circuit from the book Sedra and Smith. Here the transistor is in saturation even when the gate voltage Vg = grounded. I want to know , when the gate has been grounded there is no positive charges on the gate. Hence no inversion takes place below the gate and no channel is formed. If there is no channel at (...)
Conventionally, if equalization is carried out in time domain, matrix inversion is involved. However, if the channel has long impulse response, the computational complexity of calculation matrix inversion is very high, making it impossible for practical applications. We recall that the received signal is the linear convolution of (...)
If there is no inversion layer in the channel, the DC bias of the substrate is equal to GND, so it is impossible to conduct the VB to RF_IN.
N- and P-MOS are complementary. Think of the physics that makes them work. Generally, N-MOS are made on a P-doped substrate. So to make them work, you create an inversion layer just on the silicon surface beneath ther gate. To make so, the Gate-source potential must be positive. That is why your N-MOS works when you apply a Vgs=5V. The Vds volt
