For example, we have a rule defining the minimum distance between two metal lines or the minimum distance between a poly line and an unrelated diffusion. Inner overlap is the minimum separation between two elements that we design one inside the other. This rule avoids the two elements detaching. For example, we have a rule defining the inner overlap of the contact over or below a metal. External extension, is the minimum extension of an element overlapping another element. This kind of rule ensures that the two elements are fully overlapped.
In the latter, the equations are meant to achieve the best fitting of results with experimental measurements. Here, complex models use many parameters, most of which have little or no physical impact. However, they allow more precise results to be obtained and facilitate the extraction of the parameters from experimental measurements. Just to get an idea, let us consider the parameters that must be specified in the model card (or in the transistor card) for the simplest model used by Spice: the Level 1.
There are several approaches to describe the behaviour of the three capacitances with regard to the gate and drain voltages. The Meyer model empirically splits the gate capacitance, into varying amounts between the gate and the other terminals. Fig. 7. Equivalent Circuits 35 voltage. In the sub-threshold region, the conductive channel has not yet been created. Therefore, the coupling with source and drain is very weak: is the only significant capacitance. By contrast, in the saturation and linear region, the conductive channel produces an equivalent shielding for the substrate; thus, becomes negligible.
