Important physical insights regarding the design and performance of independent-gate FinFETs, e.g., the MIGFET , are gained from measured data and predictions from our process/physics-based double-gate (DG) MOSFET model (UFDG) in Spice3. Inversion charge-centroid shifting, modulated by gate biases as well as by quantum-confinement and short-channel effects, underlies the sensitivity of the MIGFET (front-gate) threshold voltage to the back-gate bias. MIGFET design and operation-mode options are examined for optimizing circuit applications. Further, novel design of a single-device RF mixer and a double-balanced counterpart using MIGFETs is studied with UFDG/Spice3. Reasonably good MIGFET mixers, with regard to conversion gain and linearity with small-size/low-voltage/low-power requirements, can be achieved with optimal biases on the two gates and good design of the MIGFET structure.
