The minority diffusion length as: n n n D L = , where D n = n kT/q is the diffusivity and n = p =1 s is the minority recombination lifetime. n = 800 cm 2 /Vs; p = 400 cm 2 /Vs. Diode equations: W d = x n + x p bi D A si V N N q + = 1 1 2 , N A x p = N D x n , = 2 ln i D A T bi n N N V V =8.85 1014 F/cm, si =11.7 is the relative dielectric constant of silicon, ox =3.9, q =1.6 1019 coul is the elemental charge, k the Boltzmann constant, and T the temperature. For a bipolar junction diode, I D = I (exp(V D /V T ) 1) , with + = D i p p A i n n N n L D N n L D qA I 2 2 and V T = k B T/q . The minority injection level at the edge of the depletion region can be approximated by p n = p n0 exp( V D /V T ), which is valid for both forward and reverse biases. For nMOSFET with the threshold voltage V th , the drain current I D in the linear and saturation regions above threshold ( V GS > V th ) are: (notice that C ox ch = k n ) ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 saturation 2 2 linear 2 2 2 ' 2 2 ' 2 th GS Dsat DS OV n th GS ch ox D th GS Dsat DS DS DS th GS n DS DS th GS ch ox D V V V V V k L W V V C L W I V V V V V V V V k L W V V V V C L W I = = = = <  =  = And in the saturation region, the quasistatic circuit model can be approximated as: For nMOSFET below the threshold voltage, ( 29 T th GS T DS V V V V V th D e e I L W I / / ) 1 ( 2 = and ox si C C m + 2245 1 1 , where I th is the current at V GS =V th in the EKV model. The small signal parameters can be approximated as: g m = I D /V T , r o = V A /I D and A vo = V A /V T .

The corner frequency is f c = 1/2 . MOSFET diff pair operation range: OV id OV V v V 2 2 max , < < , and the small signal transconductance gain at small v id can be evaluated from: = 2 id OVcm d v V I i ....
