Compact Si JFET Model for Cryogenic Temperature
Compact Si JFET model for SPICE circuit simulation in the extended temperature range from 373 K down to 73 K (+100 °C…−200 °C) is proposed. It is based on the standard JFET model Level = 3 (Statz model) with the full set of temperature-dependent parameters in the cryogenic temperature range. The universal procedure for model parameter extraction from I-V-characteristic measurement data at low temperature is developed. The simulation error does not exceed 10–15% in the temperature range 373 K…73 K. The JFET Low-T model is implemented in the form of a subcircuit and tested in popular SPICE-like circuit simulators: HSPICE, LTSpice, ADS, and OrCAD.
The temperature range of SPICE models of bipolar and field-effect transistors is extended from the standard commercial level (-60...+150 °C) to harsh conditions level (-200...+300 °C) for low/high temperature ICs design. This is done by including additional equations for temperaturedependent parameters, and by connecting additional elements to the device equivalent circuit to take into account the thermal effects. The universal automated methodology of model parameters extraction from the experimental data measured at low and high temperatures is proposed. The good agreement between simulated and measured device characteristics is achieved. The RMS error is not more than 10–20%.
Hardware-software subsystem designed for MOSFETs characteristic measurement and SPICE model parameter extraction taking into account radiation effects is presented. Parts of the system are described. The macromodel approach is used to account for radiation effects in MOSFET modeling. Particularities of the account for radiation effects in MOSFETs within the measurement and model parameter extraction procedures are emphasized. Application of the subsystem is illustrated on the example of radiation hardened 0.25 μm SOI MOSFET test structures.
This paper presents Low-T SPICE models of sub-micron MOSFETs, designed to calculate electronic circuits in the cryogenic temperature range (down to 4 K). The procedure for extracting the Low-T SPICE model parameters based on the measurement results or TCAD simulation of a standard set of I-V and C-V characteristics in the cryogenic temperature range has been developed.
The corrections of the methodology of power BJT and MOSFET transistor models parameter extraction taking into account the self heating effects are presented. For BJT these corrections are included into VBIC model parameter extraction process. For MOSFET current generator connected to standard SPICE MOS model is proposed to take into account drain current growth with transistor temperature.
Generalized error-locating codes are discussed. An algorithm for calculation of the upper bound of the probability of erroneous decoding for known code parameters and the input error probability is given. Based on this algorithm, an algorithm for selection of the code parameters for a specified design and input and output error probabilities is constructed. The lower bound of the probability of erroneous decoding is given. Examples of the dependence of the probability of erroneous decoding on the input error probability are given and the behavior of the obtained curves is explained.
The dynamics of a two-component Davydov-Scott (DS) soliton with a small mismatch of the initial location or velocity of the high-frequency (HF) component was investigated within the framework of the Zakharov-type system of two coupled equations for the HF and low-frequency (LF) fields. In this system, the HF field is described by the linear Schrödinger equation with the potential generated by the LF component varying in time and space. The LF component in this system is described by the Korteweg-de Vries equation with a term of quadratic influence of the HF field on the LF field. The frequency of the DS soliton`s component oscillation was found analytically using the balance equation. The perturbed DS soliton was shown to be stable. The analytical results were confirmed by numerical simulations.
Radiation conditions are described for various space regions, radiation-induced effects in spacecraft materials and equipment components are considered and information on theoretical, computational, and experimental methods for studying radiation effects are presented. The peculiarities of radiation effects on nanostructures and some problems related to modeling and radiation testing of such structures are considered.

The paper provides a number of proposed draft operational guidelines for technology measurement and includes a number of tentative technology definitions to be used for statistical purposes, principles for identification and classification of potentially growing technology areas, suggestions on the survey strategies and indicators. These are the key components of an internationally harmonized framework for collecting and interpreting technology data that would need to be further developed through a broader consultation process. A summary of definitions of technology already available in OECD manuals and the stocktaking results are provided in the Annex section.
