NANOMOSFETs scaling challenges and novel approaches to solve them


Foad Sharafi


Vol. 17  No. 7  pp. 294-300


This paper describes a comprehensive, simulation based Scaling challenges of MOSFETs including Power and performance management, Polysilicon depletion effect, Quantum effects, Gate tunneling, Threshold voltage roll-off and DIBL and Hot-carrier degradation. After that, then we propose some Technology boosters to decrease a device design, performance characterization, and the impact of statistical variability such as a Stress engineering, Performance enhancements due to strain, High permittivity gate dielectrics, High-k/metal gate and Metal gate on nanometer bulk MOSFETs. For the simulations and show the results, we used the Tcad simulation software.
