IEDM: FD-SOI Down to 10nm

IEDM: FD-SOI Down to 10nm
by Paul McLellan on 01-03-2015 at 1:48 pm

The big picture is that planar semiconductor transistors don’t really work below 20nm. The reason is that the gate does a poor job of controlling the channel since too much channel is too far from the gate and so there is a lot of leakage even when the transistor is nominally off. So the channel needs to be made thinner. One way … Read More
