This article presents the results of an experimental verification of the New Non-Quasi-Static (NQS) Small-Signal MOSFET Model proposed in [1,2]. This model is valid in all operating modes, from weak to strong inversion and from nonsaturation to saturation. For the purpose of verification test transistors with de-embedding, dummy structures in 0.35 m technology were designed. The procedure of de-embedding was based on the open-short [3] method, optimised for RF measurement up to 30 GHz. The results obtained have confirmed aplicability of the model for the small-signal MOSFET simulation.
