The BSIM (Berkeley Short-channel IGFET MODEL) parameter extraction program has been updated substantially since the first time it was released. The BSIM parameter extraction program to date (version 2.0) can extract parameters for the strong-inversion drain current, the subthreshold drain current, and the substrate current. The parameters for the drain current can be read by a special version of SPICE2.G with BSIM models implemented or by SPICE3 (level 4) to simulate MOSFET characteristics. The parameters for the substrate current are processed by SCALP (the Substrate Current And Lifetime Processors) to simulate the degradation and lifetime of MOSFET's. Several ERL memoranda are available for various parts of the parameter extraction program, SPICE and SCALP. However, the connections between these memoranda are loose. The purpose of this memorandum is to provide the users with a unified information source about the BSIM parameter extraction program and SCALP. This memorandum is divided into five chapters. Chapter 1 deals with the BSIM formulation. It includes drain current model for the strong-inversion region, subthreshold drain current model, capacitance and charge model, substrate current model, and degradation and lifetime model used in BSIM and SCALP, including whenever possible, concise accounts of their derivations. In chapter 2 is a description of the parameter extraction program. It includes the system setup requirements, the measurement procedure, theory and algorithms used in the extraction, and how the final process file is generated. A user's guide for the parameter extraction program is also included in this chapter. Chapter 3 is the BSIM program reference manual for SPICE. It describes how the BSIM model is implemented in SPICE. The user's guide for SPICE2.G with BSIM model implemented is also included. Chapter 4 is the reference manual for SCALP. Examples and results are given in chapter 5.
