Re: Globalfoundries Laounches Own FDSOI Processes: Sang Kim Sorry, I missed the 3 I-V curves of the FDSOI you posted last week. This is the first I-V curve I have seen. First, Lg= 25nm is not a normal transistor. I know nothing about Lg=25nm. I know Lg=28nm belongs to the bulk planar and Lg= 22nm belongs to Intel's FinFET. They are in mass production today. So, my first question is does Lg=25nm belong to the 28nm bulk planar or to the 22nm FinFET?  When Vd=1V and Vg=0V or transistor is off, how you avoid the punch-though currents in the un-doped SOI channel? When Vd=1V and Vg=1V, a vast majority of the generated holes due to impact ionization near the drain go the source resulting in device failure due to the formation of the N(+)source and P+hole diode resulting in large leakage currents. That is why FDSOI is not manufactured today yet and will not be because of two critical issues: 1) punch-through currents and 2) the holes go to the source.   Furthermore, the short channel effects can not be controlled by thinning the channel because you can't do thinning a 7nm channel in the manufacturing line. Also, 28nm FDSOI has to resolve the hot carrier reliability because it doesn't have LDD(lightly doped drain) unlike 28nm bulk planar and has...

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
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.
