7.6.3. Charging and discharging delay in CMOS.

Like all the Logic Gates, MOS Logic also experiences propogation delay which results in the degradation of the toggle rate og CMOS gates. In order to minimize this degradation it is important to quantitatively analyze the propogatioon delay.

In Figure 7.6.3.1. we have a NMOS being driven through a NMOS Pass Transistor by V DD magnitude Step Voltage where V DD has a magnitude of 5V.

As seen in the Figure 7.6.3.1, a 5V step input results in exponentially growing Gate Voltage. With a time-dealay of τ = RC , Gate Voltage rises to 0.63×5V. This is evident from the charging equation given in the diagram.

Here R = resistance of the n-channel of pass transistor under ON condition

=Sheet Resistance of the channel×(L channel /W channel )=R channel ;

From Table 4.6.1, for 5μm Generation Technology R sheet of n-channel = 10 4 Ω/□ and

L channel = 2λ and W channel = 2λ.

Therefore R chanel = 10kΩ×(2λ/2λ)= 10kΩ;

C = gate-to-channel area capacitance = C g = area of the gate×□C gate-to-channel =0.01pF from the Table 7.6.3 for 5μm Generation.

Hence

For 5μm Generation charging time constant = R chanel × C g = 10kΩ×0.01pF =τ = 0.1nsec;

For 2μm Generation charging time constant = R chanel × C g = 20kΩ×0.0032pF

=τ = 0.064nsec;

For 1.2μm Generation charging time constant = R chanel × C g = 20kΩ×0.0023pF

=τ = 0.046nsec;

In Table 7.6.3.1 these delays for different generations are tabulated.

Table 7.6.3.1. Delay Time Calculation for 5μm, 2μm and 1.2μm Generations.

 Generation R channel C gate τ charging τ transit 5μm 10kΩ 0.01pF 0.1nsec 0.13nsec 2μm 20kΩ 0.0032pF 0.064sec 0.04nsec 1.2μm 20kΩ 0.0023pF 0.046nsec 0.03nsec

In Basic Electrical Properties Chapter 7.3, Equation 7.3.7, the transit time through the channel is given by the equation:

Where L = 5/2/1.2μm, μ n = 650cm 2 /(V-sec), V ds = average of V DD = 3V/1.5V/0.75V

By taking the values of the parameters in Equation 7.3.7 we arrive at the transit time tabulated in Table 7.6.3.1.

By inspection of Table 7.6.3.1 we find that with scaling the charging delay decreases and speed performance correspondingly improves.

Since time constant of charging and transit time are nearly equal they are interchangeably used and it is also used as the fundamentl time unit. All timings in a system can be assessed in terms of charging time constant.

To account the variation in the parameters of the devices, we always take the worst case scenario namely 0.3nsec for 5μm Generation, 0.2nsec for 2μm Generation and 0.1nsec for 1.2μm Generation.

We conclude that standard delay unit = τ = R (sheet resiatance of the n-channel)×□C g ;

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
