Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


MOSFET breakdown voltage is strongly affected by the measurement conditions and the device layout. CDB, CGD, Rsub, and Rgate must be extracted in order to predict the device trigger voltage under subthreshold, non-dc conditions. Substrate resistance is modeled with a simple, semi-empirical equation.
