Compact and Distributed Modeling of Cryogenic Bulk MOSFET Operation

We have developed compact and physics-based distributed numerical models for cryogenic bulkMOSFET operation down to 20 K to advance simulation and first-pass design of device and circuit operation at low temperatures. To achieve this, we measured and simulated temperature-dependent current voltage characteristics of 0.16- and 0.18-μm bulk MOSFETs.
