The project will develop and validate a geometry scalable CNTFET compact model for HF circuit design and extract the model parameters from the measured characteristics of the fabricated devices. The ballistic and quasi-ballistic transport, quantum and parasitic effects will be accounted for the predicted performance will be compared to 130 nm RF Si-CMOS to determine the conditions for breaking even with CMOS and predict best CNTFET performance that can be expected. The model will be validated using the measured characteristics of fabricated transistors. The developed compact model will be suitable for design of RF and digital circuits.
