I know that one can introduce programmability in FGMOS transistor using Fowler-Nordheim Tunneling and hot electron injection, but am unable to implement this idea in cadence design tool virtuoso. I would like to know how to generate this equivalent model of programmable FGMOS in virtuoso? What are the circuit components that need to be added in order to achieve tunneling and injection in a FGMOS?enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do you want to model only tunneling and injection into the floating gate, or do you want to model normal MOS operations as well? These processes have time scales that are many orders of magnitude different so I'm not sure it makes sense to model them together. \$\endgroup\$ – Joe Hass Jan 6 '14 at 12:09
  • \$\begingroup\$ Thank you for answering! I wish to model tunneling and injection into the FGMOS only. What I am trying to do is to use these FGMOS and program their threshold voltages by tunneling and injection, and implement a programmable operational transresistance amplifier. \$\endgroup\$ – user34979 Jan 6 '14 at 14:06
