So do MOSFETs have junctions then?

["Another difference between a conventional transistor and a junctionless transistor is that the junctionless device is a normally-on device, although this is made more complex by use of doped gate materials, Professor Colinge said. But he stressed that for the purposes of logic, memory and small signal operation there is no difference to a conventional transistor. "So far as we know the devices are interchangeable and there are no implications for the layout of logic," he said. "] Hmm, perhaps 'no implications for the layout of logic' - but what about the real world detail of Power-Supply-Ramp ? A Complementary device with a sea of these, will surely have an all-on condition, until Vcc is high enough to turn off one side ?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
