If we also assume constant mobility and constant field in x direction then
The remaining integration represents the mobile charge density under the gate
Need to integrate over x and z
Left hand side is just the total channel current and the current densit
The implantation is always
followed by annealing and
often a diffusion step as well.
Well diode is an improvement
over the substrate diode, but
current flow is lateral so the
exact performance is hard to
predict.
