With tri-gate and FinFETs the electrostatics are much better. Intel has several presentations on their web site showing the advantages they claim from tri-gate vs. bulk planar- which are generally accepted/acknowledged throughout the device community. Poke around here and see:
Surprisingly (to me), I heard they will not present performance details at IEDM- I guess we can wait and hope for VLSI.
I understood that Intel is introducing FInFET at 22nm while the rest of the industry will wait for 14nm. WIll there be any advantage in terms of the performance that Intel will gain? The advantage of knowing the problems and getting to the solutions first is clear. Does anyone know the reason behind Intel's move to introduce FInFET at 22nm?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
