Sub Threshold

The sub threshold I-V curve depends exponentially on the threshold voltage, introducing a strong reliance on any manufacturing variation that influences threshold voltage; for instance: differences in oxide thickness, junction depth/body doping which change the degree of drain-induced barrier lowering. The resultant sensitivity to fabricational variations complicates optimization for leakage and performance.
