Nowadays MOSFET SPICE models achieve great precision for simulations but are too complex for hand analysis and design. On the other hand, long-channel models do not offer the precision required for current circuit design tasks. A widespread solution is to use data from SPICE-generated tables instead of long-channel models. This solution is based on the gm/Id technique for analog circuit design. In this talk, the gm/Id technique is described and some insight on its application is provided.
Angel Abusleme (IEE member since 2001) received the Diploma and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC Chile), in 2000, and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from Stanford University, CA, USA, in 2011. He is currently an Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering, PUC, Chile, where he currently serves as the Department Head. His research interests include analog IC design, instrumentation, and measurement circuits for particle physics experiments.
