1:30Compact Modeling Tutorial: Modeling of Thin-Film Transistors Based on Poisson EquationPotomac 1
Session chair: M. Miura-Mattausch (bio)
Bulk-MOSFETs are still the most successfully utilized integrated devices for real circuit applications. However, to achieve better circuit performances, thin-film transistors have been developed. Two such thin-film devices are the SOI-MOSFET and the double-gate MOSFET for better gate controllability. Additionally, the thin-film transistor concept has been extended from the conventional silicon crystalline material to amorphous and polycrystalline silicon and to different semiconductor materials including organic semiconductors. The focus of this tutorial is the compact modeling of the thin-film transistors for enabling the simulation of circuits utilizing these devices. A very important specific feature of advanced thin-film transistors is the fact that not only the front-gate control but also a back-gate control can occur at the same time. The basic physics of the thin-film transistors are included in the Poisson equation, which is the equation describing the relationship between the carrier density and the potential distribution within the device induced by the applied biases at the device terminals. How to solve the Poisson equation and how to derive analytical initial values for these solutions, to enable the compact modeling of thin-film transistors, is discussed.

3:30Compact Model Tutorial: CNTFET Based HF Electronics - State of the Art and Future ProspectsPotomac 1
Session chair: M. Schroter (bio)
Introduction: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were the center of attention in the material science (i.e. physics and chemistry) community during the nineties and early 2000s. CNTs possess a number of advantageous properties which would make CNT field-effect transistors (FETs) for certain applications superior compared to conventional bulk semiconductors. In particular, the one-dimensional (1D) transport in CNTs can lead not only to a low scattering rate and high current carrying capability but also to a linear relation between drain current and input (gatesource) voltage. While THz performance has been predicted for ideal CNTFET structures, practically existing processing and materials related issues have limited the HF performance so far. Therefore, additional electrical features, which are unavailable in existing device technologies, and access to more advanced fabrication tools (such as 180nm lithography) are required for CNTFET technology to become competitive to advanced incumbent MOSFET and HBT technologies. This paper provides an overview on the state-of-the-art of CNTFET technology in terms of manufacturable fabrication, electrical device performance, device modeling, and circuit design from a practical engineering applications point of view. Device fabrication: Various existing approaches will be discussed with emphasis on manufacturability of CNTFETs and integrated circuits for RF applications. Furthermore, the selection of substrate and compatibility of CNTFET technology with incumbent technologies (e.g. CMOS) will be discussed. Finally, a brief overview will be given on novel and potentially useful methods for making the necessary improvements for fabricating devices with competitive performance. Device Modeling: Since CNTFETs are true nanoscale devices, a wide range of simulation tools have been utilized for analyzing their properties and performance, ranging from atomistic (ab-initio) methods over Schrödinger- and Boltzmann-Poisson solvers to compact models. Common to all existing numerical device simulation methods is their focus on just single-tube devices and their extremely long simulation times, which limits their suitability for device design. Similarly, almost all compact models focus on single-tube FETs and assume ideal structures. This paper will review the existing tools and their limitations as well as provide solutions for their improvement and extension to multi-tube multi-finger devices required for real-world (50Ω based) applications. A working compact model for analog RF applications will be presented. Electrical performance: The best fabricated CNTFETs have reached peak extrinsic operating frequencies (fT and fmax) of at least 10GHz. At first glance, this appears to be suitable for addressing the RF market below about 3GHz. The paper will discuss the electrical DC, AC, power and noise characteristics for state-of-the-art high-frequency CNTFET structures along with the still existing issues associated with the fabrication process and measurement issues resulting in apparent linearity. Also, the wide-spread confusion among the circuit design community resulting from literature and business news on multi-10 and even multi-100GHz CNT and graphene based FETs will be clarified. Circuits: Since CNTFET technology is still in an emerging state, only a few RF circuits have been designed so far. Their performance will be reviewed and the major limiting factors resulting from the device characteristics will be pointed out. In addition, the potential linearity of CNTFETs will be discussed and compared to other integrated technologies. Conclusion: The most important achievements of developing a practically useful CNTFET technology will be summarized, followed by a list of still existing obstacles for turning CNTFETs into a competitive technology. Finally, the prospects of a (more) mature CNTFET technology will be discussed.
4:30Compact Modeling Tutorial: Unification of MOS Compact Models with the Unified Regional Modeling ApproachPotomac 1
Session chair: Xing Zhou, Nanyang Technology University, SG (bio)
History has witnessed generations of compact models that are used for designing VLSI circuits as the CMOS technology scales over the past decades. As conventional planar bulk and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technologies continue to scale into the 22nm technology node and below, CMOS-compatible devices such as multigate (MG) FinFETs and nanowire MOSFETs as well as III-V channel metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) high electron-mobility transistors (HEMTs) are emerging as future generation device building blocks. In this tutorial, we review the history and current trends in MOSFET compact modeling, and challenges in extending bulk/SOI models to emerging MG-FinFETs and MIS-HEMTs in a unified approach. A unified regional modeling (URM) approach is introduced for unification of FET compact models, encompassing bulk, partially/dynamically/fully-depleted SOI, double-gate (DG) and gate-all-around (GAA) MOSFETs, and generic MIS-HEMTs, which are scalable over the entire range of gate length/width as well as body doping and thickness. Other challenges in modeling higher-order effects are discussed, such as short-channel with quasi-2D solution, model symmetry and asymmetric source/drain (S/D), dopant-segregated Schottky-barrier (SB) S/D with ambipolar transport, poly-depletion/accumulation, quantum-mechanical, floating-body, 2-dimensional electron gas (2DEG), velocity-saturation and quasi-ballistic effects. Major bench-mark tests of the model (Xsim) in comparison with numerical TCAD and available measurement data are presented.
