Description

The metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor is a device used for amplifying or switching electronic signals. In MOSFETs, a voltage on the oxide-insulated gate electrode can induce a conducting channel between the two other contacts called source and drain. The channel can be of n-typeor p-type, and is accordingly called an nMOSFET or a pMOSFET (also commonly nMOS, pMOS). It is by far the most common transistor in both digital and analog circuits, though the bipolar junction transistor was at one time much more common. More information on MOSFET can be found here.

  13. Lecture 7: Connection to the Bottom Up Approach

    23 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom

    While the previous lectures have been in the spirit of the bottom up approach, they did not follow the generic device model of Datta. In this lecture, the ballistic MOSFET theory will be formally...

  14. Lecture 3A: The Ballistic MOSFET

    10 Sep 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom

    The IV characteristic of the ballistic MOSFET is formally derived. When Boltzmann statistics are assumed, the model developed here reduces to the one presented in Lecture 2. There is no new...
