This presentation is part of the 8th IEEE/ACM Workshop on Variability Modeling and Characterization (VMC) 2015. It is difficult to control the geometry, doping, and thicknesses of small transistors. Moreover, nanoscale transistors degrade due to NBTI and HCI at vastly different rates. Fortunately, designers have learned to live with these static and dynamic variabilities and produce extraordinarily fast and power-efficient ICs despite these variations. The job unfortunately is...

A Tutorial Introduction to Negative-Capacitor Landau Transistors: Perspectives on the Road Ahead
04 Dec 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Muhammad A. Alam
In this talk, I use a simple graphical approach to demystify the device and explain why the experimental results are easy to misinterpret. Since the NC-FET is just a special case of a much broader class of phase-change devices and systems (e.g., transistors, memories, MEMS, logic-in-memory architecture) that operate by tailoring the Landau potential energy landscape, once NC-FET is understood, the operation of all other devices becomes intuitively obvious as well. The talk will conclude with a discussion of four possible roads to improving NC-FET device performance.
FET pH Sensor Model 1.0.1
11 Sep 2014 | Compact Models | Contributor(s): Piyush Dak, Muhammad A. Alam
The FET pH sensor model is a surface potential compact model for FET based pH sensors that accurately describes the physics of electrolyte and surface charges that respond to pH. Used with any FET model it characterizes the operation of the device with changes in pH.
