Abstract:

An alternative field effect transistor FET structure to the junction FET JFET and the metal-semiconductor FET MESFET, the camel gate FET CAMFET, is described. This device uses the voltage-variable depletion width of a camel disode for modulating the channel current. By varying the structural parameters of the CAMET, a wide variety of FET characteristics may be obtained. CAMFETSs can be designed to yield relatively voltage independent transconductances, large for ward turn-on voltages, and large gate-drain breakdown voltages, all of which are desirable in large signal applications. CAMFETs with large transconductances. desirable in logic applications, may also be obtained. Together with ease of fabrication and potentially improved reliabilities and yields, the many advantagesof CAMFETs appear to point to a promising future in both discrete and large scale integrated circuit applications.
