Abstract

For this project, we created a simulation platform in order to optimize the silicon-on-insulator (SOI), field effect transistor (FET) switch technology. There are many alterations that could make these switches more efficient. However, such alterations are infrequently attempted due to the time-intensive nature of common circuit simulators. The goal was to create a faster way to test design ideas early in the design process. Our platform included a switch model, a transistor model, and a finite element analysis capacitance model.
