Abstract
This paper analyses theoretically and experimentally the temperature dependence of metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFET) with the aim of using them as a temperature sensor in on-chip thermal testing applications. The proposed analysis provides rules for the selection of the dimensions and the bias current of the MOSFET in order to have a high sensitivity to on-chip thermal variations generated by the circuit under test (CUT). These theoretical predictions are then contraste...
