For Drain voltages larger than V G-V T the second term in (4) saturates to V Geff(t)/α. Equation (4) therefore saturates to a minimum value as the Drain voltage increases. Thus, (4) is also fully continuous for any Drain voltage. In recent years, subthreshold operation has gained a lot of attention due to ultra low-power consumption in applications requiring low to medium performance. It has also been shown that by optimizing the device structure, power consumption of digital subthreshold logic can be further minimized while improving its performance.

Subthreshold conduction or subthreshold leakage or subthreshold drain current is the current between the source and drain of a MOSFET when the transistor is in subthreshold region, or weak-inversion region, that is, for gate-to-source voltages below the threshold terminology for various degrees of inversion is described in Tsividis.

Regarding the formulas for subthreshold region: consult almost any book about CMOS circuit design.

voltage sources. The usual way of modeling variability using threshold voltage shift and drain current amplification is becom-ing inaccurate as new sources of variability appear in subnm devices. Benchmark experiments on circuit level, using a set of TCAD-based 10nm-FinFet device models with mismatch as a reference, show systematic.

As threshold voltage is reduced, the transistor cannot be switched from complete turn-off to complete turn-on with the limited voltage swing available; the circuit design is a compromise between strong current in the on case and low current in the off case, and the application determines whether to favor one over the other.

Subthreshold leakage. Abstract — A bandgap reference circuit employing subthreshold current is proposed.

Only a small fraction of VBE is utilized to generate the reference voltage of mV. Since the subthreshold current of MOSFET’s is used as the current source, the circuit only consumes µW at supply voltage of 1V. It.

The subthreshold swing definition describes an exponential behavior of the current as a function of voltage. The sign of the parameter should depend on the type of the device (n- or p-), so it's easier to just say that some voltage difference is required for a decade of change in current.
