## [Moved]: Vdsat in weak inversion - definition

Could you explain why "weak inversion" here? According to this, it should be in moderate to Binkley (s. below), regarding to the very low vdsat=38mV info (above), it could well be in weak inversion

## Drawbacks of weak-inversion region?

How do you ensure that your operating point stays where you want it? That's the first trick. As VT slides around with temperature, are you then requiring that the circuit (centered at some subthreshold point) really work from cutoff to strong inversion when you throw PVT into the mix? Second is to be really sure that your subthreshold region is l

## technology current for inversion coefficent

The technology current (t.c.) depends slightly on temperature, s. e.g. this curve from D. Binkley's book, p. 59: 103839 This t.c. is given for a similar 180nm process (fab not named). At room temperature the t.c.≈0.6?A for NMOS transistors, for PMOS it is a factor of 3..4 less. t.c. = (Id / (W/L)) / IC , w

## temparature inversion?

Traditionally MOSFET drive current reduced with increasing temperature. Hence for most cases worst case delay corner used to be high temperature (100C or higher, depending on target application). With transistor scaling, VDD and Vt have scaled but not as aggressively as the rest of the parameters (such as gate oxide thickness, channel length etc.).

## What does cold and hot corners mean?

Hi, Cold refers to lower temperature Hot refers to higher temperature. thanks, Shobhit

## Why 28 nm CMOS is slow at cold / 0c ???

In 28nm we have a phenomenon called temperature inversion which is the cause for this issue. You can get detailed articles on the same from google.(not able to recall the exact formula :D)

## Thermal Runway in MOSFETs

The drain current temperature coefficient for a MOSFET depends on its inversion coefficient. In weak inversion, the drain current increases with temperature due to negative dependance of Vt on temperature, while in strong inversion the drain current reduces due to mobility degradation taking (...)

## Process Variations and Timing effects

have u heard abt temperature inversion. This is applicable for designs at lower nodes say below 65nm. Since increase in temperature at lower nodes makes the atoms in path gain more energy and thus mobility of the atoms increases and thus causes less delay. i guess this is what ur seeing here.

## Temperature Inversion

Can anyone explain briefly about temperature inversion?

## Electromigration:- basic rule to be followed

Hi, Can anyone explain abt the relation b/w temp & current density which plays a role in Electromigration in detail. My undertanding is that, when Temp increases - delay increases (Ignore temperature inversion concept), so the resistance will be more as delay increase, hence the flow of current will be slow. I accept

## Why is the Delay Increases in Temperature inversion Corner ( i.e less than 0'C)

Hi Kicha, Go through the below link. Alpesh Kothari: temperature inversion. Is this a new 45nm effect? Regards

## How does temperature affect set-up and hold time

Device Switching is fastest at low temperatures. This isn't necessarily true in all cases. In some process technologies there is a phenomenon called temperature inversion. In this case, a ss0p81v110c operating condition corner might be the same speed or faster than the ss0p81v0c corner, for example.

## any information on Temperature inversion

hi guys i would like to have any information on temperature inversion , links to sites , papers and attachments will be keenly appreciated..thankyou

## corner selection during dc synthesis

In general, yes. Once you implement the clock tree there may be new violations that come up in the fast corner due to skew, but this is after the synthesis stage. Also, for designs in 65nm and below, you may want to check the temperature you are using at your slow corner. temperature inversion effects can come into play that make timing (...)

## What happens to current flow in mosfet when temperature decreases?

It is there in the explanation of the model : In weak inversion: Id=Im * exp( (Vgs-Vm)/n*φt)*[(1-exp(-Vds/φt), where Im=(W/L)*I'm φt=(k*T)/q In saturation: Id=(k/2)*(Vgs-Vt)? Vt=Vto+γ(√Vsb+φo -√φo) so doing the math we find out that the dependance from the factor of the temperature is a bit comple

## what is temperature inversion

hi all. i want to know about temperature inversion. plz dont say that as temp/ increses delay decreses in 90 nm and below. plz elaborate. pandit

## threshold voltage vs temperature in MOSFET

Hi, all. I heard that there are folks who use gm/iD methology for analog design circuit (In contrary, Vov or Vdsat design method) - some paper discuss about this methodolgoy (i.e., JSSC 1995) Are real designers using this methodolgy to design analog blocks? I understand that you first have to make script to approximate the all the desig

## How to design a 10nA DC current source?

The solution used in CMOS is to implement a beta multiplier biased in weak inversion. I made one of this fro biasing a pacemaker circuit. There is no problem to get this currents provided that the temperature range is not so wide, as current is proportional to Vt
