RC extraction problem

Dear all,


Is there any one experienced the same case with me?



I have a close loop bias transistor which source and body is connected to same power (pls see the attachment). When I extract R of this connection, we found that the resistance is much smaller than by hand calculation (such as extraction result is 29ohms while hand calculation is 59ohm; please note that I haven’t calculate the bias contact). We guess that the small resistance is caused by the diffusion contact which reduces the resistance a lot.


I tried to prove my guessing by setting the sheet resistance of PSD / NSD to 0 ohm/sq.  However the results showed no difference.  Could anyone give comment on it? Below is my modification in the tech file.  Is there any problem in the modification?  Do I miss something?


// =================================================

// ===  Resistance Sheet  [Prop_Cnst, Max_Dist]  ===

// =================================================


RESISTANCE SHEET NSD           [0   0 2.905E-3 -3.686E-7]  MASK

RESISTANCE SHEET PSD           [0     0 2.949E-3 -4.049E-7]  MASK

RESISTANCE CONNECTION METAL1 NSD             [0 0] MASK   // Contact

RESISTANCE CONNECTION METAL1 PSD             [0 0] MASK   // Contact
