Purpose: A TFET (Tunnel Field Effect Transistor) is a potential candidate to replace CMOS in deep-submicron region due to its lower SS (subthreshold swing, <60 mV/decade) at room temperature. However, the conventional TFET suffers from low tunneling current and high ambipolar current. To overcome these two drawbacks a new structure, known as Hetero-dielectric gate TFET (HDG TFET), has been proposed in the literature.
Method: To analyze the electrical characteristics of this structure, a closed form of analytical expression of current is required. This paper presents the closed form of compact analytical current model for HDG TFET structure without using any iterative method.
Result: The developed compact analytical models show a good agreement with 2-D TCAD simulator results. The model is used to study in depth about the electrical behavior of the device under various physical variation as well as bias variation.
Conclusion: The proposed model can be incorporated into SPICE to describe the behavior of HDG TFET faster.
