In this paper, the impact of nanowire source/drain extension, diameter, and channel length on nanowire (NW) device performance is investigated. We present a novel approach using the extension length as tuning parameter to match the drive current of n- and p-FET in NW CMOS logic applicable down to 10-nm gate length. Our approach overcomes the drive matching issue in NW/FinFET based CMOS circuits. We show that, in comparison to conventional CMOS, where the number of NWs/fins in p-FET is used to… CONTINUE READING
