Paper Abstract

Three standard 1/f noise models for MOSFETs are actually implemented in software packages: SPICE, HSPICE and recently BSIM3v3l. The aim of this paper is to show the limitation of each of these implementations by comparison between noise simulations and noise measured data. We demonstrated that 1/f noise model implemented in SPICE and HSPICE can not predict correctly noise in all operating regimes which limit their usefulness for design purposes. We show that BSIM3v3 allows the better fitting with experimental noise results in all operating regimes.
