Abstract

The metal source/drain (MSD) Schottky barrier MOSFET offers several benefits enabling the scaling of MOSFET below 30 nm gate lengths. MSD Schottky barrier MOSFET possesses low parasitic S/D resistance, abrupt junctions that enable the scaling of the device to sub-10-nm gate lengths, superior control of leakage current due to the intrinsic Schottky potential barrier, and elimination of parasitic bipolar action. In this work, we propose a novel lateral Schottky Collector Bipolar Transistor (SCBT) employing multi zone base and multi step buried oxide has been proposed and simulated. The proposed device is simulated by using a 2D numerical simulator MEDICI. The simulation study has revealed that the proposed device with two base doping zones has ~30 % higher breakdown voltage than the conventional device. The breakdown voltage increases further and is ~75 % higher, when the number of zones in the proposed devices is increased to three. The increase in breakdown voltage can be attributed to the creation of extra electric field peaks in extended base region by multi doping zones in the base.
