**Enhancement mode MOSFET is influenced by early effect that arises in short channel devices. Since we are dealing with 180nm technology the devices are prone to short channel effects. This channel length modulation introduces an additional term in the MOSFET equation. It’s represented as ‘λ’ but is different from the device parameter used for expressing sizes of transistor parts. It’s the inverse of early voltage. The implication can be understood by observing the output characteristics. The curve influence by channel length modulation will develop a slope corresponding to the early voltage in the saturation region of the output characteristic of the NMOSFET. This video gives a better explanation to the working of MOSFET and guides you through the implementation of code and interpretation of graphs.**

__OUTPUT CHARACTERISTICS__**In this graph, the early voltage is 200V. So the effect is higher than the case following this. The output characteristics have been highly modified with the help og graph editor in MATLAB to help viewers explore them.**

**In this graph the early voltage is 1000 V. Therefore, the curve is not so sloppy. This is the original appearance of the output curve without any modification. In other words, this curve obeys the code!**
