1. A standard MOSFET is fabricated with ms = -0.89 V, N ss = 5x10 10 cm 2 , t ox = 50nm, N A = 10 15 cm -3 , and the area of the gate is A G = 10 -3 cm 2 . a.) Determine the flat band voltage. b.) Determine the threshold voltage, V T . c.) Choose whether the MOSFET is an enhancement mode or a depletion mode MOSFET. Why? d.) At V GS – V T = 3 V and V DS = 1V, the MOSFET described above exhibits drain current, I D = 2.5 x 10 - 4 A. Using the long channel device model, calculate the drain current if V GS – V T = 3 V and V DS = 4 V. e.) Consider the MOS transistor above biased in the circuit below. Assume that the resistors, R, are large enough that negligible current flows through them compared to the to the drain current, I D . Plot I D vs. V DS . Solution: a.) V FB = ms – qN oc /C ox = ms – qN oc t ox / ox = -0.89V – (1.6 x 10 -19 Coul.)(5 x 10 10 cm -2 )(5 x 10 -6 cm)/(3.45 x 10 -13 F/cm) = -0.89V-0.116V = -1.006V b.) V T = V FB + 2 F +  (2 F ) 1/2  = (2 s qN A ) 1/2 /C ox = 0.26 V 1/2 F = V t ln(N A /n i ) = 0.298V V T = -1.01+0.596+0.26 x 0.77 = -0.21 c.) Since MOSFET conducts for V GS > V T and V GS = 0 > V T , the device conducts at V GS = 0. Therefore it is a depletion mode MOSFET. d.) V GS – V T = 3 V. When V DS = 1 V, the device is in the linear region since V DS < V GS –V T . Therefore I D = [(V GS -V T )V DS – V DS 2 /2] = 2.5 x 10 -4 A and  can be calculated to be  = 10 -4 A/V 2 . When V
