A new analytical current-voltage (I-V) model for submicrometer and deep-submicrometer metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) is developed based on a newly developed charge-control model for the metal-oxide-semiconductor structure. Threshold-voltage shift due to quantum mechanical effects, finite inversion layer thickness effects (inversion layer capacitance), as well as increased depletion layer charge density after the strong inversion point are incorporated in the model. Inversion layer charge density with respect to the gate voltage from depletion through weak inversion to strong inversion regions with smooth transition between different regions is given by one expression. Two-dimensional short channel effects such as channel length modulation, drain-induced barrier lowering, mobility degradation, and carrier velocity saturation, as well as polysilicon depletion effects are included in the I-V model. Model results are compared with both numerical results of carrier sheet density and surface potential in the channel, and experimental results of I-V data for submicrometer and deep-submicrometer MOSFETs down to 0.09-μm effective gate length and the accuracy of the model are demonstrated
