The Nano-MOSFET: A brief introduction
17 Aug 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
MOSFET channel lengths are now well below 100nm, and getting smaller, but MOSFETs are still modeled and understood much as they were 30 years ago. Seminal work in the 1960’s laid the foundation for our understanding of the MOSFET, but traditional approaches are based on concepts that lose...
The MVS Nanotransistor Model: A Primer
26 Nov 2014 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mark Lundstrom
In this talk, I will present a gentle introduction to the MVS model. I’ll show how the basic equations of the model can be obtained by using a traditional approach to MOSFETs. I’ll then indicate how the parameters in this traditional model must be re-interpreted in order to capture...
