This work presents new compact models that capture advanced physical effects presented in industry FinFETs. The presented models are introduced into the industry standard compact model BSIM-CMG. The core model is updated with a new unified FinFET model, which calculates charges and currents of transistors with complex fin cross-sections. In addition, threshold voltage modulation from bulk-bias effects and bias dependent quantum mechanical confinement effects are incorporated into the new core model. Short channel effects, affecting threshold voltage and subhtreshold swing, are modeled with a new unified field penetration length, enabling accurate 14nm node FinFET modeling. The new proposed models further assure the BSIM-CMG model's capabilities for circuit design using FinFET transistors for advanced technology nodes.
