10 Things I saw at IDF2014

Ransom Stephens -September 15, 2014

I went to my first IDF (Intel Developer's Forum) in 2004 and it was boring. The only resemblance to the hybrid trade-show/Intel glorification ritual event I attended this week was the sense from some of the engineers manning booths that Intel nearly extorts them into paying for booth space: You want to do business with Intel? Maybe you would like to purchase a booth at IDF? (Do you suppose Yelp executives came from Intel?)

Here are 10 things I saw at IDF2014, counting down from 9 to 0, of course.

I believe intel and ARM have reacher equal power already(for the processor), even for smartphones. and what's stopping the bloodbath is modems , other IP and the low cost of ARM chipsets.

And on the servers , the ARM camp is still having a hard time.

I wouldn't want to have to go up against Intel with an ARM chip for the data center, nor would I want to go up against ARM with an x86 chip in smartphones and tablets. I guess that's capitalism for ya.

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,...
