Unformatted text preview: ECE 230B, HW-#4, Winter 2010 1. Apply constant-field scaling rules to the long-channel currents, Eq. (3.19) for the linear region, and Eq. (3.23) for the saturation region, and show that they behave as indicated in Table 4.1. Solution: Under the scaling transformation, W W / , L L / , t ox t ox / , V ds V ds / , V g V g / , and V t V t / , Eq. (3.19) becomes I C W L V V V I ds eff ox g t ds ds - = ( ) / / ; and Eq. (3.23) becomes I C W L m V V I ds eff ox g t ds - = ( ) / / 1 2 2 . Note that both m = 1 + 3 t ox / W dm and eff which is a function of E eff given by Eq. (3.49) are nearly invariant under constant field scaling. 2. Apply constant-field scaling rules to the subthreshold current, Eq. (3.36), and show that instead of decreasing with scaling (1/ ), it actually increases with scaling (note that V g < V t in subthreshold). What if temperature also scales down by the same factor ( T T / )?...
