It is known for this device that W= 10 μ m, L =0.5 μ m, and t ox =5 nm. a) Find the threshold voltage Since V DS =50 mV and L =0.5 μ m, the average field in the channel is 0.1 V/ μ m=1kV/cm and the device is not in the velocity saturation region. Thus the expression (Equation (8.4)) ( 29 ( 29 ' 1 2 ox DS DS D GS T GS T WC V V I V V L V V μ θ =-- +- can be used. The threshold is extrapolated from the linear region, and using Equation (8.8), 0.05 0.5 2 2 DS T T V V V V + = = + Therefore V T =0.475V. b) Find μ , the electron channel mobility at threshold. The slope of the linear region is about 160 μ A/(0.5V)=0.32mA/V. From Equation (8.7), we have ' D ox DS GS dI WC V dV L μ = Anderson & Anderson 1 November 19, 2007 Solutions Chapter 8 C ox ' = ε ox t ox = 3.9 ( 29 8.85 × 10- 14 F / cm ( 29 5 × 10- 7 cm = 6.9 × 10- 7 F / cm 2 Solving for μ we have ( 29 3 2 ' 7 2 0.5 0.32 10 / 460 10 6.9 10 / 0.05 D GS ox DS dI L dV A V cm WC V F cm V V s μ-- × = = = × ⋅ 8.2. A particular MOSFET process produces C B ' =10-7 F/cm 2 and I = 4 × 10- 20 A , and a threshold voltage of V T =0.5V. For gate oxide thicknesses of 6.5 nm and 4 nm, find n and S .

The swing S is smaller, resulting in a sharper turn-on and thus permitting a reduced threshold voltage and a reduced power supply voltage and reduced power consumption. 8.3. a) Find W p / W n needed to match I Dsat for CMOS transistors if μ lfn = 500 cm 2 / V ⋅ s , μ lfp =200 cm 2 /V·s, L= 0.5 μ m, and V GS- V T =2.6 V. Assume that 6 4 10 / sat v cm s = × s. From Figure 8.6, we want W p W n = 1.3 . b) Find V DSsat for the NMOS and the PMOS.
