This book will help CMOS circuit designers make the best possible use of SPICE models, and will prepare them for new models that may soon be introduced.KEY TOPICS:Introduces SPICE modeling and its use in CMOS circuit design. Presents the formalism of model building and the semiconductor physics of MOS structures. Covers each important SPICE model, showing how to choose the appropriate model. Discusses the popular HSPICE Level 28, as well as Levels 1-3, BSIM 1-3, and MOS Model 9. Presents techniques for accounting for systematic process variations. Describes new model candidates, including the Power-Lane Model, the PCIM Model, and the EKV Model. Includes extensive examples throughout.MARKET:Practicing engineers and scientists in the semiconductor industry; engineering faculty and students.
