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.

  1. Two-Dimensional Scattering Matrix Simulations of Si MOSFET'S

    28 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Carl R. Huster

    For many years now, solid state device simulators have been based on the drift-diffusion equations. As transistor sizes have been reduced, there has been considerable concern about the predictive capability of these simulators. This concern has lead to the development of a number of simulation...

  2. Verification of the Validity of the MOSFET Tool

    11 Oct 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    Output characteristics of a bulk MOSFET are computed using MOSFET lab and compared with an analytical model based on Bulk-Charge theory. Parasitic resistance is used as a fitting parameter in the analytical model. MATLAB script used for verification is also available for download.
