Transistor Evolution from 90nm to 15nm
Dr. Victor Moroz, Synopsys
The crisis in transistor scaling is responsible for the slower than anticipated variability increase and for the stress engineering taking over the driver’s seat in the performance race. A change in the transistor architecture at 15nm node will change the balance of major variability mechanisms and some of the lithography requirements and design rules. It will also open the door for introduction of non-silicon transistors built on top of a silicon wafer. Comparative analysis of a planar bulk MOSFET with FDSOI MOSFET and a FinFET shows their pros and cons and suggest their likely roles in the future.
