This book is the first to explain FinFET modeling for IC simulation and the industry standard - BSIM-CMG - describing the rush in demand for advancing the technology from planar to 3D architecture, as now enabled by the approved industry standard. The book gives a strong foundation on the physics and operation of FinFET, details aspects of the BSIM-CMG model such as surface potential, charge and current calculations, and includes a dedicated chapter on parameter extraction procedures, providing a step-by-step approach for the efficient extraction of model parameters. With this book you will learn: • Why you should use FinFET • The physics and operation of FinFET • Details of the FinFET standard model (BSIM-CMG) • Parameter extraction in BSIM-CMG • FinFET circuit design and simulation • Authored by the lead inventor and developer of FinFET, and developers of the BSIM-CM standard model, providing an experts' insight into the specifications of the standard • The first book on the industry-standard FinFET model - BSIM-CMG.
