JCBond on Turing Test -- Are You Talking to a Human or a Machine?
dadeus on July 2015 Cartoon Caption Contest: Ain't Nobody Here but Us Chickens
Re: Globalfoundries Laounches Own FDSOI Processes: Sang Kim First, according to my "device physics" your baseline device that has a gate length(channel length) of 24nm requires channel thickness of 6nm, not 7nm in order to avoid punch-through. The channel length is determined by source to drain length, not by the spacer to spacer length unless the spacer to spacer is is the same as the source to drain length, but it is not likely.  At what tech nodes they(?) use "shallow but relatively heavily doped S/D extension"? The next node to 28nm bulk is 22nm bulk. The 22nm bulk was not manufactured because unable to suppress leakage currents at the bulk 22nm node due to short channel effects. Therefore, the 28nm bulk wasn't scalable to 22nm, thus ended at the 28nm node. That is why Intel developed and manufactured FinFET at 22nm to suppress leakage currents. The FinFET on-currents come from the very long periphery region. Therefore, LDD is unnecessary at any node. The beauty of FinFET is that as long as fin width at the bottom of the fin is equal to or smaller than the gate length, Lg or channel length, the leakage currents are suppressed. That is why Intel 14nm FinFETs are volume manufactured over two years and TSMC 16nm FinFET will be manufactured in 2016 or next year but no bulk at any node yet except at 28nm node.It...

Flash Poll
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
