A new approach to the current-voltage (I-V) characteristics formulation for short-channel MOSFET’s by incorporating the channel length modulation, mobility degradation, drain induced barrier lowering, and threshold voltage variation into Pao-Sah’s equation is presented. Results show that the calculated I-V characteristics agree well with the experimental ones for devices with effective channel length in the range of 0.44 ~ 20 µm. Compared with the existing models, the model has the advantages of less number of model parameters and simpler form of the current-voltage relationship. © 1994 IEEE
