We demonstrate that a ferroelectric field-effect transistor (FeFET)-based spiking neuron is capable of mimicking various spiking and bursting patterns characteristic of cortical neurons. We propose a compact model to describe the dynamical behavior of such FeFET-based spiking neurons. This model captures the current-voltage dynamics of the FeFET and the critical voltages of its hysteretic region. It is aimed at system-level modeling and simulation of biomimetic networks of the FeFET neurons that are ideal for neuromorphic computing.
