PNDCAP models a PN junction depletion and diffusion capacitance. It is identical to the model used in SPICE for diodes and the capacitance components of BJTs.
|*CJ0||Zero-voltage junction capacitance||Capacitance||0 pF|
|*VJ||Junction potential||Voltage||1 V|
|*FC||Depletion capacitance linearization parameter||0.5|
|*TT||Storage time||Time||0 ns|
|*IS||Reverse saturation current||Current||1e-11 mA|
|AFAC||Area scaling factor||1|
* indicates a secondary parameter
NOTE: Although junction current parameters must be entered to calculate diffusion capacitance, this model does not include junction current.
The depletion charge expression is identical to that of PNCAP. Additionally, PNDCAP includes a diffusion charge component, given by the following:
In the above equations, q is electron charge, K is Boltzmann's constant, and T is temperature in Kelvins. The total charge is the sum of the depletion and diffusion components.
