  • Publication number: 20140343880
    Abstract: A method for deriving characteristic values of a MOS transistor is described. A set of ?k values is provided. A set of VBi values (i=1 to M, M?3) is provided. A set of RSDi,j (i=1 to M?1, j=i+1 to M) values each under a pair of VBi and VBj, or a set of Vtq—q,j (q is one of 1 to M, j is 1 to M excluding q) values under VBq is derived for each ?k, with an iteration method. The ?k value making the set of RSDi,j values or Vtq—q,j values closest to each other is determined as an accurate ?k value. The mean value of RSDi,j at the accurate ?k value is calculated as an accurate RSD value.

    Abstract: A method of fabricating a complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) device is provided. A first conductive type MOS transistor including a source/drain region using a semiconductor compound as major material is formed in a first region of a substrate. A second conductive type MOS transistor is formed in a second region of the substrate.
