The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET, MOS-FET, or MOS FET) is a device used to amplify or switch electronic signals. It is by far the most common field-effect transistor in both digital and analog circuits. The MOSFET is composed of a channel of n-type or p-type semiconductor material (see article on semiconductor devices), and is accordingly called an NMOSFET or a PMOSFET (also commonly nMOSFET, pMOSFET).

MOSFet tool simulates the current-voltage characteristics for bulk and SOI Field Effect Transistors (FETs) for a variety of different device sizes, geometries, temperature and doping profiles.

Teachnig Material and Exercises:

  • MOSFET Operation Description
  • MOSFET Exercises: Series Resistance, Punchthrough and Impact Ionization
  • SOI Exercise: Basic Operation of n-channel SOI Device
  • MOSFET lab is based on the Padre simulation tool developed by Mark Pinto, R. Kent Smith, and Ashraful Alam at Bell Labs.
