Abstract: In this work, an improved version of the basic structure of a compact MOSFET model and the respective parameters extraction methodology are proposed. The aim of this approach is to increase accuracy in hand calculations for analog circuit design without significantly increasing its complexity. The influences of both inversion level and channel length are considered in the modeling of a few features such as mobility, threshold voltage and onset of saturation. Simple design examples of current sinks and sources are accomplished to compare the basic and the improved models [read more...]

[paper] Compact Electro-Mechanical-Fluidic Model for Actuated Fluid Flow System

Compact Electro-Mechanical-Fluidic Model for Actuated Fluid Flow System

Abstract: This paper presents a compact electro-mechanical-fluidic system-modeling method for multidomain system simulation based on multidomain physics that considers the total energy conservation condition, in terms of respective potential and flow quantities. Models for electrical, mechanical, and fluidic domains are developed to design the example of a blood pumping system, where the blood flow is driven by electrically controlled organic actuators. The electrical domain includes an organic mosfet-based control circuit, the mechanical domain includes organic actuators, and the fluidic domain includes a flexible fluid-flow channel. Control circuit, actuators, and fluid models are coupled through equivalent circuits, where interconnection relationships between two neighboring domains are expressed using the energy conservation concept. The model accuracy is verified with finite element method (FEM) based numerical simulation. Significantly faster simulation speed than with FEM and good accuracy were achieved [read more...]
