The relativistic problem of spin-1/2 fermions subject to vector hyperbolic (kink-like) potential (∼ tanh kx) is investigated by using the parametric Nikiforov-Uvarov method. The energy eigenvalue equation and the corresponding normalized wave functions are obtained in terms of the Jacobi polynomials in two cases.
