PNCAP is a PN or Schottky junction depletion capacitance. It is identical to the model used in SPICE for diodes and the depletion components of BJT capacitance.
|*CJ0||Zero-voltage junction capacitance||Capacitance||0 pF|
|*VJ||Junction potential||Voltage||1 V|
|*FC||Depletion capacitance linearization parameter||0.5|
|AFAC||Area scaling factor||1|
* indicates a secondary parameter
The charge-voltage characteristic Q(Vj), where Vj is junction voltage, is identical to that used in SPICE to model depletion capacitances. It is given by the following equations, which result in a linearly with junction voltage when Vj > FC VJ. This prevents the problem of
The capacitance-voltage characteristic C(Vj) is found by differentiating the above equations:
When 0.999 < M < 1.001, it is offset to the closest end of this range.
