Temperature dependence of drain current is analyzed in detail in terms of mobility and threshold voltage. From the analyses, it is proved that a point exists that the drain current is fixed without depending on temperature when the MOSFET operates in strong inversion. Applying this characteristic, a CMOS temperature-voltage converter operating in strong inversion with high linearity is proposed. SPICE simulation and experimental results are shown, and the corresponding performances are discussed.
