Affilation: Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Pages: 396 - 399

Keywords: velocity-overshoot subthreshold current model, deep-submicron MOSFET devices

In this paper, a new theoretical approach to submicrometer MOSFET subthreshold current modeling is presented. The diffusion and drift currents are calculated, respectively. The effect of velocity overshoot on subthreshold current is investigated. Comparison with MEDICI simulation results verifies the model.
