    what is the impact of the temperature on the characteristics of NMOS transistors?

    Thread moved to EE for now.

    hxluo, what can you tell us about NMOS transistors in general? What mode do they operate in (enhancement, depletion?)? What is the physical mechanism behind transistor action for n-channel MOSFETs? How would you expect that to be affected by temperature? Would that be the same or different, as compared to BJT transistor action variations over temperature?

    Specifically, think about the effect that temperature has on carrier mobility.
