Based on a new empirical mibility model which is solely dependent on Vgs, Vt and Tox, a coresponding semiempirical Idsat model for n-MOSFET including velocity saturation, mobility degradation due to increased vertical effective field, and source/drain series resistance of LDD structures is reported in this paper. A good agreement among the model and the measurement data from several different technologies is shown. Prediction of Idsat for the future generation of device scaling and low-power applications by using this new model is presented.
