Substrate contact - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

In CMOS ckt, there is one extra terminal for substrate contact to each component.

Can you tell me the significance of this terminal in CMOS?
what should be the effect if we avoid this terminal?

You don't actually have to ground the terminal but it should at least be tied to the CMOS Source termainal. The difference in connecting the sub-tie to ground vs. tying it to the Source would be a slight difference in the threshold voltage.

Of course if we are talking about a PMOS device then the tie would be connected to either the Source or the positive supply.

what should be the effect if we avoid this terminal?

The transistor won't work properly.

In some process technologies, it is possible to avoid connecting the body, namely specific SOI (Silicon-on-insulator). Here it can also matter if you are depleted or fully depleted, either way it is defined by your process.

Generally (especially in a bulk CMOS process), Jom's statement is correct. If you do not connect it the device will not function properly.
