Tunneling field-effect transistors (TFETs) are being widely investigated as a post-CMOS technology; however, despite significant experimental efforts, no quantitatively accurate device models are available. We derive an expression which provides the complete current characteristics of the double-gate TFET and demonstrate its agreement with simulation. This model will be useful in the design and circuit analysis of TFETs.
