Eric: I'd love to see at the February event the 2014 update of that "Most Importnat Slide"

I'd also love to hear your insights on the question of new materials and transports like Megtron-6 and optics.

Future low loss PCB di-electric material

"The difference, however, is less than an order of magnitude."


Megatron6 is one of the future PCB dielectric material. Is it commercially deployed yet? How does the cost of Megatro6 compares to that of FR4?

Some time back I learned Megatron6 is only one in the list of several other low loss PCB dielectric material such as FX-2, I-speed (from Isola) etc. Is there a comparative chart available somewhere?

What about the concept of using the optical PCB and interconnects for the high speed backplane? Not sure if there are any significant breakthrough made on the optical PCB technology.

When you have mutliple HSS, is it possible to get embedded coax in PCB. Are there technics available for this? Main reason is that, high speed signal is only part of all signals and there are many more signals which requires backplane.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
