We are reporting the construction of a common platform for compact model development based on the Verilog-A language and in particular a framework for efficient development of multi-gate MOSFET models for circuit simulation. Phenomena expected to become important for the multi-gate MOSFET generation are modeled on the basis of their physical origin. These phenomena are implemented into the specific multi-gate MOSFET models by plugging in modules from the common platform. Parasitic resistive and capacitive contributions are also modularized to represent the complete circuit performance of the multi-gate MOSFET model for efficient circuit development.
