FinFET......: Sang KimIntel's 14nm FinFETs are in high volume manufactured over two years. Samsung 14nm FinFETs are manufacturing this year. In my opinion Intel will not or need not to adopt the QW FETs to leapfrog the industry for its next two generations such as 10nm and 7nm nodes contrary to David Kanter's bold predictions. The 10nm FinFET device currents come from three distinct regions: first, 3nm FD peripheral region from 10nm Fin width or FinW at the Fin bottom to FinW 7nm. The device on-current here is very small because the periphery region is so small. Second, the inversion region from FinW equal to 7nm to FinW to 4nm. I call this second region an inversion region because the overall FinW here is so narrow that the entire region is inverted as seen in a double gate transistor. Thus, the 10nm FinFET device current predominantly comes from the inversion region. The third region consists of FinW equal to 3nm, 2nm and 1nm that are not manufacturable because they are not subject to the classical device physics any more, instead subject to QM confinement effects. For the 7nm FinFETs the FD periphery region doesn't exist, only the inversion region occurs providing the highest device on-currents because the FinW of 7nm FinFETs is significantly narrower than that of 10nm FinFETs providing significantly higher inversion or volume...

Let me be clear. I am neither Luddite nor alarmist. But I can’t help wondering if benefits of the “Connected Car” outweigh its risks.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Why Connect a Car?
May 11, 1pm EDT Monday
Overview: Battle-hardened veterans of the electronics industry have heard of the “connected car” so often that they assume it’s a done deal. But do we really know what it takes to get a car connected and what its future entails? Join EE Times editor Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of movers and shakers in the connected car business. Executives from Cisco, Siemens and NXP will share ideas, plans and hopes for connected cars and their future. After the first 30 minutes of the radio show, our listeners will have the opportunity to ask questions via live online chat.
