Abstract We present a compact model for Tunnel Field Effect Transistors (TFET), that captures several non-idealities such as the Trap Assisted Tunneling (TAT) originating from interface traps ( D it ), along with Verilog-A implementation. We show that the TAT, together with band edge non-abruptness known as the Urbach tail, sets the lower limit of the sub-threshold swing and the leakage current at a given temperature. Presence of charged trap states also contributes to reduced gate efficiency…
