—FinFET structures enable scaling to very short gate lengths beyond 10nm, however, device-width quantization has been identified as a possible technology disrupter for its widespread adoption. Prior work has shown that the effect is more pronounced for circuits such as latches which are sensitive to the β β β β-ratio and that special tools and algorithms are required to migrate bulk CMOS designs to FinFET-based circuits. This paper investigates the effect of width granularity on functionality… CONTINUE READING
