This paper presents a very simple methodology for determining the threshold voltage. The procedure is based on the expressions of the Advanced Compact MOSFET (ACM) model, valid in all regimes of operation, which assures physical meaning, consistency and reliability for the results. The extraction of the threshold voltage is accomplished over a single measured drain current characteristic in the linear region, in order to avoid short channel effects.
