What is the best transistor structure to meet SRAM performance and yield requirements at the 22nm node? The semiconductor device research group at UC Berkeley pioneered the FinFET structure in 1998. Now SOI-based FinFETs lead the field of candidate structures to eventually replace the planar bulk MOSFET. In the near term, yield and manufacturability may […]

Might the Back-Gated FD-SOI MOSFET be the ultimate transistor structure? The fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) MOSFET structure has been proposed for scaling CMOS technology to sub-45nm nodes. This is because short-channel effects (manifested in increasing off-state leakage with increasing drain bias and with decreasing gate length) are well suppressed in a FD-SOI MOSFET when the […]
