POWER/HVMOS Devices Compact Modeling
edited by Wladyslaw Grabinski and Thomas Gneiting
Semiconductor power electronics plays a dominant role due its increased efficiency and high reliability in various domains including the medium and high electrical drives, automotive and aircraft applications, electrical power conversion, etc. Power/HVMOS Devices Compact Modeling will cover very extensive range of topics related to the development and characterization power/high voltage (HV) semiconductor technologies as well as modeling and simulations of the power/HV devices and smart power integrated circuits (ICs). Emphasis is placed on the practical applications of the advanced semiconductor technologies and the device level compact/spice modeling. Power/HVMOS Devices Compact Modeling is intended to provide reference information by selected, leading authorities in their domain of expertise. They are representing both academia and industry. All of them have been chosen because of their intimate knowledge of their subjects as well as their ability to present them in an easily understandable manner.

CMOS technology has now reached a state of evolution, in terms of both frequency and noise, where it is becoming a serious contender for radio frequency (RF) applications in the GHz range. Cutoff frequencies of about 50 GHz have been reported for 0.18 μm CMOS technology, and are expected to reach about 100 GHz when the feature size shrinks to 100 nm within a few years. This translates into CMOS circuit operating frequencies well into the GHz range, which covers the frequency range of many of today‘s popular wireless products, such as cell phones, GPS (Global Positioning System)
