UF “Compact” Models: A Historical Perspective

Authors: J.G. Fossum

Affilation: University of Florida, United States

Pages: 714 - 719

Keywords: SOI MOSFETs, DG MOSFETs, SOISPICE, UFPDB, UFDG

Abstract:
The history of the developments of “compact” models for SOI MOSFETs at the University of Florida (UF) is reviewed. The uniqueness and innovation of the UF “process-based” models are reiterated, and their global utility as excellent SOI research/education tools for more than 25 years is exemplified. Floating-body (FB) hysteresis, G-S/D underlap, bulk inversion, and pseudo-latch (recent) are noted as new insights on SOI devices (i.e., PD and FD MOSFETs, DG FinFETs, and FB DRAM cells) that were attained using the UF “ugly duckling” Spice compact models.
