The aggressive downscaling of advanced bulk CMOS technologies demands MOSFET models that are able to describe accurately the behavior of devices accounting for all the physical phenomena. A reliable model should have the ability to handle all the different operating regions of the MOS transistor in the whole geometry range of one technology. Targeting to meet the aforementioned needs, the new charge-based compact model BSIM6 has been developed. In this article, as a first benchmarking of BSIM6, the model is evaluated for its scaling capabilities when a single set of parameters is used. The model is compared against a state-of-the-art 40nm CMOS technology. The results attest the model's scalability under all bias conditions, proving its reliability for nowadays complex IC designs.
