## w/l ratio typical value

Typical value of MOSFET for what? W/L = 10u/0.18u, 1u/0.18, 10u/0.6u, 1000u/0.6u

minimum dimensions are set by technology design rules. Max - whatever.

Question like that does not have answer.....

## mosfet typical length analog design

Thanks Teddy. Im trying to design an analog delay line as my undergraduate project. my supervisor has asked me to work out the W/L of the CMOS 0.35u. I believe chosing the W/L can vary the transconductance and/or reduce the Vgs drop across the Mosfet. am i correct?

Thanks

## Re: what is the typical value of Mosfet?

You'll have to find out what your target gm is and plug in the figures into the formula to get an approximation of the W/L. Your Vgs and Vds has to be large enough to keep it in saturation too. Consult your 0.35um process manual for other figures. Your min. length should be 0.35um.

## Re: what is the typical value of Mosfet?

I personaly would start from the "Spec". What should be the minimum delay, max delay, is it variable delay or fixed delay, should it be differential or not?

What size are your I/Os or is it just block without any output spec? (VOH, VOL etc)

You should probably make a calculation of the "stage" delay ( I am sure you had it during the course) and based on the calculation and the spec. you should be able to figure that out.

If you want just to put something quick together I would say 5/0.35 seems quite reasonable .... (though a little big)

Thanks, what I meant by the delay line is actually an analog shift register. it really is just connecting a bunch of S/H circuit and a few buffer together.

say I want to make a switch for the simple S/H circuit what gm should it be?

It depends on the speed requirement.

MOSFET is voltage controlled device and its properties mainly based on W/L ratio i'e width and length.L shows the technology you are using

## Re: what is the typical value of Mosfet?

length of the mosfet totally depends upon the technology u r using.then according to specification/s u can determine the width of the transistor

the length of a typical transistor.
