The effects of different substrate-contact structures (T-gate and H-gate) dynamic threshold voltage silicon-on-insulator (SOI) nMOSFETs (DTMOS) have been investigated. It is found that H-gate structure devices have higher driving current than T-gate under DTMOS-mode operation. This is because H-gate SOI devices have larger body effect factor (γ), inducing a lager reduction of threshold voltage. Besides, it is found that drain-induced-barrier-lowering (DIBL) is dramatically reduced for both T-gate and H-gate structure devices when devices are operated under DTMOS-mode.
