Maybe the worker tried that once and got a new one reamed for questioning authority. Now he just follows the blueprints and keeps his opinions to himself - and his job.

I agree -- if you were working on this, wouldn't you say to the boss "Hey -- this is stupid" -- take #9 for example, didn't anyone say "how will people actually use this ATM?"

I guess the construction companies should have CAD tools like our electronic design to validate design from Arch. specification to lower details before prototype/tape-out :). btw even if designs were wrong, i wonder what the workers were thinking while creating these masterpieces [grin]

I'm hard-pushed to pick my favorites out of all of these -- every time I look at any of them I wince ... they all make you wonder what the contractor was thinking... ... but I have to say that #9 and #11 sort of grab my attention...

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,...
