Submicron Circuit Design with BSIM3/4

Workshop on Compact Modeling Tutorial

Mansun Chan
University of California at Berkeley USA


The development of the BSIM family was started around 15 years ago and the third generation of the family, BSIM3v3 has been selected to be the present industrial. Due to the rapid development of new features, the philosophy of the BSIM models that leads to its success has often been overlooked. In this tutorial, the different tradeoffs in modeling directions will first be overviewed to explain the approach taken by BSIM. The fundamental equations in BSIM3 will be explained that follow the classical Meyer's model that most circuit design techniques are based on. A set of simplified equations will be given that can be used for hand calculation with reduced number of parameters. Finally, the advanced features provided by BSIM4, the forth generation and newest member of the family will be described.
