Depending on the FET application, its channel shape may be different [1–5]. However, for all FET types the theory has been developed only in the simplest case of a rectangular transistor channel. Therefore there is a problem of calculating the characteristics of FETs with another channel shape. The similarity relation, obtained in this paper, solves the above problem.
