      This paper presents the cylindrical gate-all-around (GAA) silicon on insulator (SOI) FinFET, which not only eliminates the corner effect but also shows high on-drain current $(I_{\rm{ON}}) (\sim 10^{−2} \rm{A})$, low leakage current $(I_{\rm{OFF}}) (\sim 10^{−10} \rm{A})$, high $I_{\rm{ON}}/I_{\rm{OFF}} (10^{8}$ > $10^{6})$ and reduced subthreshold swing (SS) (64.55 mV/dec, which is nearest to the Boltzmann limit of 60 mV/dec). To have a better understanding of the working principles, analytical modelling of electrical parameters such as surface potential, threshold voltage, drain current and SS hasbeen carried out by solving two-dimensional Poisson’s equation using superposition principle. The behaviour of threshold voltage, drain current and SS has been investigated for different dimensional and electrical parameters such as channel lengths, channel radius, gate work functions, dielectric constants, drain-to-source voltages andchannel concentrations. The physics-based models have been cross-examined with extracted three-dimensional TCAD simulation results. The modelled values show good agreement with the simulated data. Moreover, analogue performances such as transconductance, output conductance, intrinsic gain and gate capacitance for differentchannel lengths and radii of the presented device are also studied.
