A Small-Signal Analysis Based Thermal Noise Modeling Method for RF SOI MOSFETs
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research M, Vol. 57, 81-89, 2017
Abstract
We investigate thermal noise mechanisms and present analytical expressions of the noise power spectral density at high frequencies (HF) in Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MOSFETs. The developed HF noise model of RF T-gate body contact (TB) SOI MOSFET for 0.13-μm SOI CMOS technology accounts for the mechanisms of 1) channel thermal noise; 2) induced gate noise; 3) substrate resistance noise and 4) gate resistance thermal noise. The extraction method of modeling parameter utilized by Y-parameter analysis on the proposed small-signal equivalent circuit is demonstrated in this paper. Excellent agreement between simulated and measured noise data is obtained at different temperatures.
