In this paper, we have presented the need for Middle of Line (MOL) Local Interconnects in a fixed layout shape called “Special Constructs” in order to make 20nm a very compelling technology for product migration from 28nm. These constructs are used to demonstrate considerable area, cost, and power/performance benefits by enabling efficient and(More)
By comparing with the characteristics of the traditional mobile Quality-of-Service mechanisms, the idea of zonebased bandwidth allocation for mobile users in the IEEE 802.16j multi-hop relay network (IEEE 802.16-MR) is proposed in the paper. The zone of a mobile user includes the current relay station and its neighboring relay stations within the zone size(More)
Continuous process-level and system-level innovation has driven Moore's Law scaling for the last fifty years, and will continue to do so in the next decades. In the last two decades, there has been an acceleration of new materials and devices into semiconductor manufacturing, such as low-k, strained Si, high-k, and FinFET, in order to continue process and(More)
