In this tutorial evolution of transistors from planar technology will be discussed. Scaling limitations of conventional transistors that led to development of Finfet (or 3D) transistors will be presented in detail. Circuit Design challenges associated with 3D transistors will be analysed in this tutorial. Lastly, a brief overview of future transistor architectures beyond Finfet's will be provided.
