New process modules and device architectures for (sub-) 32 nm CMOS lead to both opportunities and challenges for analog/RF and mm-wave circuit design. A survey will be given describing the advanced process modules and competing architectures (planar bulk CMOS versus FinFETS), and their impact on analog/RF performance. FinFETs will be shown to be better… CONTINUE READING
