Transistors for Next Decade: FinFETs and Beyond


Event Speaker: 

Dr. Witold (Witek) P. Maszara of Global Foundries

Event Location: 

Grier 34-401

Event Date/Time: 

Wednesday, November 19, 2014 - 12:00pm

Research Area: 

Seminar is being held in Grier 34-401, please come by at 11:30am for a light lunch before the seminar begins.


Since 2012 leading edge CMOS products moved into dramatically new device technology – a FinFET. Designing FinFET devices and FinFET-based circuits brings new challenges that will be discussed here. Extension of CMOS into new channel materials and new device architectures expected to be used in market products toward the end of this decade will also be presented.
