Thin-film, self-aligned source-gated transistors (SGTs) have been made in polysilicon. The very high output impedance of this type of transistor makes it suited to analog circuits. Intrinsic voltage gains of greater than one thousand have been measured at particular drain voltages. The drain voltage dependence of the gain is explained based on the device physics of the source-gated transistor and the fact that pinch-off occurs at both the source and the drain. The results obtained from these devices, which are far from optimal, suggest that, with proper design, the source-gated transistor is well suited to a wide range of analog applications.
