Implementation of MOSFET Parameter Extraction Flow for Sky130 into DMT

The Skywater130 PDK has brought about significant disruption in the open-source semiconductor landscape, eliminating barriers and reducing costs for all participants. Unfortunately, the compact models in the Skywater PDK are mediocre at best and hinder the effective use of the technology for analog circuit design. In this project, a compact model parameter extraction flow is implemented into the open-source device modelling software DMT. This will allow to generate improved models that can be used by circuit designers for cutting edge designs. The models will be verified on measurement data. The parameter extraction flow will also be useful for future open-source PDKs, that are currently on the way.
