A simplified distribution base resistance model (SDM) is proposed to identify each component of the base resistance and determine the dominant. This model divides the parasitic base resistance into one straight path and two surrounding paths. It is clarified that the link base resistance is dominant in a short emitter and the surrounding polysilicon base electrode resistance is dominant in a long emitter. In the SDM, the distance of the link base is reduced to half; with metal silicide as the extrinsic base electrode, the base resistance will be reduced to 75%.
