Argh. It is "...on". Thanks for the catch. And you're right again - it was a gradual ascent to enlightenment.

Actually we were BOTH wrong. It's the Silmarillion (I had 2 l's, you had 2 i's)

Max, have you ever heard of a RED PENCIL? It's a Reliable Electronic Device for Printing Every Name Composed of Initial Letters (ie an acronym generator). Yet to be invented.....

My own family calls me "friki" more times I'd like to admit!! Fortunately, we have now our own day! When I was at the Uni, my flat-mates and me build a wifi map with the different keys of the neighboring networks that were available in each room of the apartment. P.S. I wonder what the APP crew would answer to this geek-test...

I never learned that as an acronym -- I learned the mnemonic phrase, of course :-) When I was teaching undergrads, I once drew a circuit with a capacitor I labeled "FBC". I told them if they didn't know what it stood for, to "ask around". Got a good chuckle from the audience.

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,...
