A 22nm generation logic technology is described incorporating fully-depleted tri-gate transistors for the first time. These transistors feature a 3 rd-generation high-k + metal-gate technology and a 5 th generation of channel strain techniques resulting in the highest drive currents yet reported for NMOS and PMOS. The use of tri-gate transistors provides(More)
This article proposes the concept of neuromorphological space as the multidimensional space defined by a set of measurements of the morphology of a representative set of almost 6000 biological neurons available from the NeuroMorpho database. For the first time, we analyze such a large database in order to find the general distribution of the geometrical(More)
For the first time, the performance impact of (110) silicon substrates on high-k + metal gate strained 45nm node NMOS and PMOS devices is presented. Record PMOS drive currents of 1.2 mA/um at 1.0V and 100nA/um Ioff are reported. It will be demonstrated that 2D short channel effects strongly mitigate the negative impact of (110) substrates on NMOS(More)
We report a morphology-based approach for the automatic identification of outlier neurons, as well as its application to the NeuroMorpho.org database, with more than 5,000 neurons. Each neuron in a given analysis is represented by a feature vector composed of 20 measurements, which are then projected into a two-dimensional space by applying principal(More)
– Intel Corporation is delivering myriad presentations, panel discussions and demonstrations at this year's VLSI Symposia. A highlight paper discloses new details about Intel's 22nm process – the industry's first fully depleted 3-D tri-Gate technology with superior low voltage and low power capabilities. Other Intel papers describe innovations in reducing(More)
The continuing neuroscience advances, catalysed by multidisciplinary collaborations between the biological, computational, physical and chemical areas, have implied in increasingly more complex approaches to understand and model the mammals nervous systems. One particularly important related issue regards the investigation of the relationship between(More)
