Leveraging Nonplanar Transistor Architectures and New Materials to Power Mobility Apps Beyond 20nm


Tuesday, July 9, 2013
South Hall, Moscone Center


The mobile market is driving the semiconductor industry to continue its move to transistor architectures that offer greater performance and power benefits than traditional planar architectures. There is not, however, only one way to achieve the required performance. IC manufacturers are pursuing different strategies including leveraging innovations in design rules. To continue the pace of development below 20nm, however, the industry will need to find suitable new channel materials and processes (e.g., MOCVD). This session will present various transistor architecture options below 20nm and the status of channel materials development. Additionally, inspection and metrology challenges associated with new materials will be discussed.
