MOSFET Generations

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES, volume 7)


The introduction of a new MOSFET generation on the market usually takes place in a situation when the previous generation has been there for many years and further incremental improvement of the technology doesn’t provide satisfactory improvement of the MOSFET performance. Figure 4.1 illustrates how the introduction of every new MOSFET generation in the past significantly improved the FOM. In marketing papers the transition steps are called technology breakthrough.
