A Si-channle MESFET using .delta.-doped layers was designed and the considerable enhancement of the current driving capability of the device was observed by simulation. The channel consists of double .delta.-doped layers separated by a low-doped spacer. Cariers are spilt from the .delta.-doped layers and are accumulated in the spacer. The saturation current is enhanced by the contribution of the carriers in the spacer. Among the design parameters that affect the peformance of the device, the thickness of the spacer and the ratio of the doping concentrations of the two .delta.-doped layers were studied. The spacer thickenss of 300~500.angs. and the doping ratio of 3~4 were shown to be the optimized values. The saturation current was observed to be increased by 75% compared with a bulk-channel MESFET. The performances of transconductance, output resistance, and subthreshold swing were also enhanced.
