[mos-ak] [2nd Announcement and C4P] 4th International MOS-AK/LAEDC Workshop July 3 Puebla (MX)

2nd Announcement and C4P

Together with local online host, the LAEDC Organizers as well as all the Extended MOS-AK TPC Committee, would like to invite you to the 4th International MOS-AK/LAEDC Workshop which will be organized as the virtual/online event on July 3  between 8:30am -  12:30pm (UTC/GMT -5 hours) as a hybrid event in Puebla (MX) providing an opportunity to meet with modeling engineers and researchers from Europe and Latin America.

Upcoming MOS-AK/LAEDC Workshop aims to strengthen a network and discussion forum among experts in the field, enhance an open platform for information exchange related to compact/SPICE modeling and Verilog-A standardization, bring academic and industrial experts in the compact modeling field together, as well as obtain feedback from technology developers, circuit designers, and CAD/EDA tool developers and vendors, in particular using Free 130nm Skywater PDK.

Topics to be covered include the following among other related to the compact/SPICE modeling and its Verilog-A standardization:
  • Compact Modeling (CM) of the electron devices
  • Advances in semiconductor technologies and processing
  • Verilog-A language for CM standardization
  • New CM techniques and extraction software
  • Open Source (FOSS) TCAD/EDA modeling and simulation
  • CM of passive, active, sensors and actuators
  • Emerging Devices, Organic TFT, CMOS and SOI-based memory
  • Microwave, RF device modeling, high voltage device modeling
  • Nanoscale CMOS, BiCMOS, SiGe, GaN, InP devices and circuits
  • Technology R&D, DFY, DFT and reliability/aging IC designs
  • Foundry/Fabless Interface Strategies (eg: Skywater 130nm CMOS)

    Abstract: This paper investigates the turning-on-voltage (VFB/VTH) of Al2O3/GaN MOS stacks with n-doped GaN, p-doped GaN and not intentionally doped (NID) GaN by exploiting capacitance measurements on large gate area test structures with systematic variation of Al2O3 thickness (tox). Measurements are compared with 1D Schrödinger-Poisson simulations including incomplete ionization model. The necessity of using a quantum description of electron density is demonstrated especially for thinner gate oxides. We found that, contrary to what is expected, p-doping below the channel barely increases the VTH and the VTH is independent of tox, even if the density of activated acceptors is demonstrated to be sufficiently high. Our results highly suggest that the negative charge induced by p-doping is compensated at the oxide level.
