From the Back Cover

All the power of SPICE in one easy-to-use book!

The growth of the semiconductor industry has created a demand for ever more sensitive and accurate modeling, with special focus on the field-effect transistor (FET). Until now, semiconductor designers have had to piece together standards and techniques from a daunting variety of sources.

MOSFET Modeling with SPICE brings it all together into a single volume that covers all the FET models used in mainstream versions of SPICE, providing a handy reference for the practicing circuit designer. In addition, this book explores the development of the various technologies available and presents the current standards in an easily-referenced format.

Beginning with a discussion of the SPICE circuit simulation environment, MOSFET Modeling with SPICE goes on to review the basic physics of semiconductor devices, and the standard forms for modeling and testing them, along with a comparison of analytical and numerical results. The heart of the book discusses the major FET models:

Following these specifics, the book discusses device capacitance, process variations, and the correlation of various models with specific hardware, then looks to the future of device models for circuit simulation.

Appendices include a comparative overview of the models discussed, a review of channel layout, and a full listing of all the model equations.

For engineers who develop MOSFET models and circuit designers who use them, MOSFET Modeling with SPICE provides the only complete single-volume reference for SPICE modeling in solid state electronics. This comprehensive, practical, and easy-to-read text by one of the industry's leading experts on the subject is a required addition to the basic set of references used by practicing engineers in the semiconductor industry.
