SOI (Silicon-On-Insulator) technology emerged aiming to answer for the demand of integrated circuit technologies that could allow the reduction of transistor dimensions beyond the limits of bulk technology. The Ultra-Thin Body and Buried oxide (UTBB) SOI transistor, as well as the FinFETs (multiple gates), is now considered as an actual alternative to standard CMOS for 20nm node and below, due to its better electrostatic control. Besides, the UTBB devices allow both low power and high performance circuits in the same chip, thanks to the multiple threshold voltages achieved by different back-gate biases. Compact models are important tools for understanding the devices behavior and further the technology prediction. Accurate and computationally efficient compact models for ultra-scaled transistors have to be developed and improved, in order to efficiently design and simulate complex application circuits. For UTBB devices, there are some models in literature that take into account the independent gate operation of ultra-thin devices. Up to now, there are two compact models already implemented in circuit simulators that have been indicated for the use in UTBB devices: the BSIM-IMG model, from Berkeley University and theUTSOI2 model, from CEA-LETI and STMicroelectronics. This research project aims at evaluating the application of these compact models to UTBB devices. The models behavior will be studied from experimental data and device simulation. Hence, it will be possible to propose improvements for the models, with better physics description, considering specific effects of UTBB devices. The results will be evaluated with device simulations, experimental data from literature and experimental data from UTBB devices that are available at UCL, where the research will be developed. A critical review of achieved results will be made, in order to position them in the international context of the research area, and opportunely published. (AU)
