Keywords: BSIM3, BSIM4, parameter extraction, penalty function
The first successful automatic extraction of BSIM3/4 model parameters based on numerical optimization of a functional, which includes penalty functions, is reported. The penalty functions always keep the values of the model parameters within a physical range without manual tuning and human influence on the extraction procedure.
