Hacking a depletion MOSFET model

Started by Phil Hobbs May 5, 2018
The LND150 model predicts IDSS of about 2.4 mA, whereas the actual parts 
cluster very tightly around 1.6 mA.  Here's the model--what should I 
adjust to fix it?

.MODEL LND150   NMOS (LEVEL=3   RS=150.00          NSUB=5.0E13
+DELTA=0.1      KAPPA=1.O       TPG=1              CGDO=2.1716E-12
+RD=40.0        VTO=-2.0        VMAX=1.0E8         ETA=0.1
+NFS=6.6E10     TOX=1.0E-7      LD=1.698E-9        UO=862.425
+XJ=6.4666E-7   THETA=1.0E-5    CGSO=5.09E-10      L=10.0E-6
+W=600E-6)

Nope, it isn't that useful for board-level stuff, except for smallish all-discrete designs where the models are reasonable, so that's one trick this particular pony prefers to delegate if possible. ;) The part is just an NMOS, no subcircuit. Cheers Phil Hobbs

I Spice fairly big board-level designs. Helps me get all the loop dynamics right, and computes power dissipations, and makes pretty waveforms for manuals. Sometimes I actually design with Spice. I have a new high-voltage pulse generator topology that evolved (random mutation and selection) by fiddling with Spice. Spice understood the circuit before I did. I'm frying some inductors above 1 MHz pulse rate because LT Spice forgot to include skin effect. I also had a problem caused by Conservation of Energy, an unfortutate invention of some thoughtless physicists. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc lunatic fringe electronics

Why did you snip this line, "What .ASY are you using for the LND150?" That's the "being helpful" part. The "snarky part" is because Engelhardt (sp?) doesn't follow standard spice convention... I expect AD to fix that once he's gone. ...Jim Thompson -- | James E.Thompson | mens | | Analog Innovations | et | | Analog/Mixed-Signal ASIC's and Discrete Systems | manus | | STV, Queen Creek, AZ 85142 Skype: skypeanalog | | | Voice:(480)460-2350 Fax: Available upon request | Brass Rat | | E-mail Icon at http://www.analog-innovations.com | 1962 | Thinking outside the box... producing elegant solutions, by understanding what nature is hiding.
