THE UNIVERSITY OF ARI ZONA Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering ECE 304 Fall 2009 Design Lab #1 (Due 9/ 1 8/0 9 ) 1. Figure 1 shows the measured I D -V DS curves of a 5um/0.15um ( W/L ) NMOS transistor. (the data file is attached) Figure 1 a) Estimate the model parameters (Level 1) V T0 , γ , k’ , and λ of this transistor. (Assume ϕ f = 0.3 V) b) Calculate the small signal parameters ( g m , g mb , and r o ) at the operating point A. ( V GS = 1.2 V, V BS = 0, V DS = 0.8 V) c) Use the results of part (a) to complete the .model statement of the following HSPICE netlist to simulate the I D -V DS curves of figure 1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
