## On what principle MOS diffusion capacitance model works?

A MOS transistor can be viewed as a four-terminal device with capacitances between each terminal pair. The gate capacitance includes an intrinsic component (to the body, source and drain, or source alone, depending on operating regime) and overlap terms with the source and drain. The source and drain have parasitic diffusion capacitance to the body.

## How to Calculate Built-in Potential?

Built-in Potential calculator uses Built-in Potential = Thermal Voltage*ln((Acceptor Concentration*Donor Concentration)/(Intrinsic Electron Concentration^2)) to calculate the Built-in Potential, The Built-in potential formula is defined as the built-in potential in a semiconductor which equals the potential across the depletion region in thermal equilibrium. It also equals the sum of the bulk potentials of each region, since the bulk potential quantifies the distance between the fermi energy and the intrinsic energy. Built-in Potential is denoted by ψo symbol.
