The CMOS technology with MOSFETs below 70 nm node for Semiconductor Industry Association roadmap has outstanding resistance to short-channel effect and improves the scalability of the device. Cylindrical surrounding double-gate (CSDG) MOSFETs have been proposed as a suitable CMOS substitute to reduce the area and power tradeoff. This paper presents mathematical modeling of the electron density arrangement in the CSDG MOSFET for hybrid RF applications. In this device, the arbitrary alloy of Aluminum Gallium Arsenide (AlGaAs) has been used. This material lies between Aluminum Arsenide and Gallium Arsenide. High electron mobility and the lesser bandgap in AlGaAs make it suitable for the design of CSDG MOSFET for low-frequency applications. In the middle of CSDG MOSFET, the electron density (N2D) has been observed to be 1.92 × 1013 cm−2 for arbitrary alloy-based MOSFET and 1.02 × 1013 cm−2 for the conventional SiO2-based MOSFET towards the drain terminal. The electron density has been observed to be 7.90 × 1012 cm−2 for arbitrary alloy-based MOSFET and 5.86 × 1012 cm−2 for the conventional SiO2-based MOSFET along the channel. The results show that the average speed of the electron inside the device channel is submissive to the conventional MOSFET.
