About this book
This book on Double-Gates devices and circuit is unique and aims to reinforce the synergy between the research activities on CMOS sub-32nm devices and the design of elementary cells. The goal is to point out how we can take advantage of new transistor structures to come up with new basic cells and concepts that exploit the electrical features of these new devices and the breakthrough they bring.
Planar Double-Gate Transistor will mainly focus on SOI CMOS transistors, fully depleted with double independent planar Gates (Independent Planar Double Gates Transistors: IPDGT), a potential candidate for the sub-32 nm technological nodes as planned by the current ITRS Roadmap.
The book topics are mainly focusing on:
- Detailed description of specific processes that allow the optimization of the CMOS IPDGT device
- CMOS IPDGT modeling, both compact and physical models are presented
- Device characterization
- Design of innovating cells (SRAM cells, basic digital & analog functions) with the objectives to improve the level of integration and the robustness to variability as well as the power consumption optimization, using the degree of freedom introduced by the independent gates.
