MOS-Varactor, RF-applications, carrier transit delay, capacitance, accumulation mode

For RF-circuit analysis, an accurate compact model for the MOS varactor is urgently desired. We have developed such an accurate MOS varactor model HiSIM-Varactor based on the surface-potential MOSFET model HiSIM. HiSIM-Varactor includes the majority carrier transit time, causing a formation delay of the accumulation/depletion condition. Good agreement with 2D device simulation result is verified up to 200GHz operation. The calculated quality factor is proved to deviate from linearity as a function of operation frequency due to the majority carrier transit delay.
