    How do I calculate the input capacitance of a CMOS inverter such as this:


    I have been given:

    *The gate area of the inverter
    *The Transconductance parameter
    *The electron mobility

    I think it is a simple formula but I am unsure and can't find it researching on the web.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

    Have you thought about borrowing a good book on semiconductors & electronics devices from your nearest town library or university library?

    However, there is a very good lecture series on MITOpenCourseware at least one lecture is on Micro Electronics Devices and 6.012 for 2005

    The above may be of some help.
