  • This paper describes the electrode work-function, oxide thickness, gate-source/drain underlap, and silicon thick ness optimization required to realize dual-Vth independent-gate FinFETs. Optimum values for these FinFET design parameters are derived using the physics-based University of Florida SPICE model for double-gate devices, and the optimized FinFETs are simulated and validated using Sentaurus TCAD simulations. Dual-Vth FinFETs with independent gates enable series and parallel merge… CONTINUE READING
