ACM  Advanced Compact MOSFET 
The ACM (Advanced Compact MOSFET) model is a chargebased physical model. All the largesignal characteristics (currents and charges) and the smallsignal parameters transconductances and transcapacitances are given by singlepiece expressions with infinite order of continuity for all regions of operation.

Angelov GaN  industrystandard compact device model for GaN transistors 
AngelovGaN is an industrystandard compact device model for GaN semiconductor devices. Since GaN devices typically operate at high power, it is important to be able to model thermal issues and their impacts on device characteristics. Prof. I. Angelov at Chalmers University of Technology developed his AngelovGaN model as an alternative.

BSIM6  Berkeley Shortchannel IGFET Model 
BSIM6 is the new Bulk MOSFET model from the BSIM Group. The model provides excellent accuracy compared to measured data in all regions of operation. It features model symmetry valued for analog and RF applications while maintaining the strong support and performance of the BSIM model valued for all applications since 1996. The model has been extensively tested by TechAmerica Compact Model Council (CMC) member companies to meet the needs of industrial users. CMC has approved the release of BSIM6.0.0 as an industrystandard MOSFET model.

HICUM  HIgh CUrrent Model 
HICUM stands for HIgh CUrrent Model and targets the design of bipolar transistor circuits at highfrequencies and highcurrent densities using Si, SiGe or IIIV based processes. HICUM is being developed and maintained by the HICUM Group at CEDIC, University of Technology Dresden, Germany, and the University of California at San Diego, USA. Presently three hierarchy (levels) of HICUM models (e.g., Level0, Level2 and Level4) exist differing by model complexity and each targeting a different design purpose.

MEMS Switch  largesignal model for a ohmic cantilever RF MEMS switch 
The VerilogA large signal model can be used for operating point, small signal (AC, SP) and large signal (HB, PSS, QPSS) simulations, using ADS, SpectreRF or Qucs. It includes largesignal electromechanical effects, as well as smallsignal Brownian and JohnsonNyquist noise. It does not include electrothermal effects yet.

MEXTRAM  compact model for bipolar transistors 
Mextram is a compact model for bipolar transistors: it supports the design of bipolar transistor circuits in silicon (Si) and silicongermanium (SiGe) based process technologies. Mextram is developed and supported at Delft University of Technology. Mextram has been selected by the Compact Model Council (CMC) as a world standard bipolar transistor compact model for the semiconductor industry.

PSP  Compact Model for bulk MetalOxideSemiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFET's) 
PSP is a surfacepotential based MOS Model, containing all relevant physical effects (mobility reduction, velocity saturation, DIBL, gate current, lateral doping gradient effects, STI stress, etc.) to model presentday and upcoming deepsubmicron bulk CMOS technologies. PSP not only gives an accurate description of currents, charges, and their first order derivatives (i.e. transconductance, conductance and capacitances), but also of the higher order derivatives, resulting in an accurate description of electrical distortion behavior. The latter is especially important for analog and RF circuit design. The model furthermore gives an accurate description of the noise behavior of MOSFETs. Finally, PSP has an option for simulation of nonquasistatic (NQS) effects.

VBIC  Vertical Bipolar Intercompany Model 
VBIC is a bipolar junction transistor (BJT) model that was developed as a public domain replacement for the SPICE GummelPoon (SGP) model. VBIC is designed to be as similar as possible to the SGP model, yet overcomes its major deficiencies. VBIC improvements on SGP: Improved Early effect modeling; Quasisaturation modeling; Parasitic substrate transistor modeling; Parasitic fixed (oxide) capacitance modeling; Includes an avalanche multiplication model; Improved temperature modeling; Base current is decoupled from collector current; Electrothermal modeling; Smooth, continuous model.
