A 14nm logic technology using 2<sup>nd</sup>-generation FinFET transistors with a novel subfin doping technique, self-aligned double patterning (SADP) for critical patterning layers, and air-gapped interconnects at performance-critical layers is described. The transistors feature rectangular fins with 8nm fin width and 42nm fin height, 4<sup>th</sup>(More)
Increasing process variation in advanced technology nodes requires sustained process and circuit innovation to meet yield, performance and margin requirements for SRAM memories. Memory assist circuits are becoming an important tool in co-developing critical scaled memory solutions and can have significant impact on process optimization, as well as power(More)
A leading edge 14 nm SoC platform technology based upon the 2<sup>nd</sup> generation Tri-Gate transistor technology [5] has been optimized for density, low power and wide dynamic range. 70 nm gate pitch, 52 nm metal pitch and 0.0499 um<sup>2</sup> HDC SRAM cells are the most aggressive design rules reported for 14/16 nm node SoC process to achieve Moore's(More)

When I decided to apply for the PhD-position that resulted in the present study, I knew little more about Reinhold than Reinhold knew about Kant when he decided to write against Kant on Herder's behalf in 1785. Like Reinhold, I was tempted by a job opportunity to engage with the writings of a philosopher I was not yet familiar with. And like Reinhold, I(More)
Future product applications demand increasing performance with reduced power consumption, which motivates the pursuit of high-performance at reduced operating voltages. Random and systematic device variations pose significant challenges to SRAM V<sub>MIN</sub> and low-voltage performance as technology scaling follows Moore's law to the 22nm node. A(More)
An analysis of composite inertial motion (relativistic sum) within the framework of special relativity leads to the conclusion that every translational motion must be the symmetrically composite relativistic sum of a finite number of quanta of velocity. It is shown that the resulting space-time geometry is Gaussian and the four-vector calculus has its roots(More)
