Freescale has investigated a selective biaxial-uniaxial strain hybridization method that significantly enhances drive current without adding process complexity. It has become increasingly difficult to scale CMOS transistors, yet still maintain high drive currents and simultaneously reduce supply voltage (Vdd). This is because threshold voltage and gate oxide thickness cannot be scaled at the same rate […]
