In this letter, we present a compact model and analyze the impact of key parameters on negative capacitance FinFET (NC-FinFET) device operation. The developed model solves FinFET device electrostatics and Landau-Khalatnikov equations self-consistently. An experimental NC-FinFET device is accurately modeled and the experimentally calibrated parameters are used to analyze the NC-FinFETs device performance and its dependence on several key parameters.
