Performance of symmetric lateral doping-free bipolar junction transistor (BJT) on silicon on insulator (SOI) in universal gates and ring oscillator were investigated. Charge carriers in SOI at emitter and collector regions are induced with two unique approaches, i.e., the charge plasma (CP) and polarity control (PC). Four types of devices (CP-NPN, CP-PNP, PC-NPN, and PC-PNP) was used for bipolar CMOS type NAND and NOR gates. Excellent transient response with rise and fall time less than 5 ns and propagation delay less than 2.4 ns were obtained. © 2020 IEEE.
