Outline Qualitative Description of CMOS Transistor g m /I D Design Biasing a transistor Using g m /I D Approach Design Using Cadence

3
A Crude Metal Oxide Semiconductor (MOS) Device P-Type Silicon is slightly conductive. Positive charge attract negative charges to interface between insulator and silicon. A conductive path is created If the density of electrons is sufficiently high. Q=CV. V2 causes movement of negative charges, thus current. V1 can control the resistivity of the channel. The gate draws no current!

4
An Improved MOS Transistor n+ diffusion allows electrons move through silicon. (provide electrons)(drain electrons)

5
Typical Dimensions of MOSFETs These diode must be reversed biased. tox is made really thin to increase C, therefore, create a strong control of Q by V.

6
A Closer Look at the Channel Formulation Need to tie substrate to GND to avoid current through PN diode. Positive charges repel the holes creating a depletion region, a region free of holes. Free electrons appear at VG=VTH. VTH=300mV to 500 mV (OFF)(ON)

7
Channel Resistance As VG increases, the density of electrons increases, the value of channel resistance changes with gate voltage.

8
Drain Current as a function of Drain Voltage Resistance determined by VG.

9
Drain Current as a function of Gate Voltage Higher VG leads to a lower channel resistance, therefore larger slope.

10
Length Dependence The resistance of a conductor is proportional to the length.

11
Dependence on Oxide Thickness Q=CV C is inversely proportional to 1/tox. Lower Q implies higher channel resitsance.

12
Width Dependence The resistance of a conductor is inversely proportional to the cross section area. A larger device also has a larger capacitance!

13
Channel Pinch Off Q=CV – V=VG-V OXIDE-Silicon V OXIDE-Silicon can change along the channel! Low V OXIDE-Silicon implies less Q.

14
VG-VD is sufficiently large to produce a channel VG-VD is NOT sufficiently large to produce a channel No channel Electrons are swept by E to drain. Drain can no longer affect the drain current!

15
Regions No channel (No Dependence on VDS)

16
Determination of Region How do you know whether a transistor is in the linear region or saturation region? – If VDS>(VGS-VTH) and VGS>VTH, then the device is in the saturation region. – If VDS VTH, then the device is in the linear region.

17
Graphical Illustration

18
Limited VDS Dependence During Saturation As VDS increase, effective L decreases, therefore, ID increases.

19
Pronounced Channel Length Modulation in small L

20
Transconductance As a voltage-controlled current source, a MOS transistor can be characterized by its transconductance: It is important to know that

Assumption: VDD=1.2 V Transistor Information: Type: 120 nm Specify VDS Note var1_1 is ‘vsd’ if pmos is used Note var2_1 is ‘vns’ if nmos is used. In this example, is initially unknown, so we will assume that it is 0.0

41
Interpolation Since the database base can not be so large as to keep all possible values of vds/vsb, we have to interpolate based on existing values, which are available On 0.1 V interval. Current release: need to enter inBias <= the minVar1 and maxVar1. minVar=maxVar-0.1
