Module overview

The module will discuss all important issues related to scaling down the transistor size into the nanometer regime, such as high-k dielectrics and FINFETs. The teaching will be complemented with a finite element simulation of the MOS scaling which will bring into practice many of the above improvements. Silvaco TCAD tools are used: industry-standard software to simulate semiconductor processing and device operation (Technology Computer-Aided Design).

This module is taught together with ELEC3207 Nanoelectronic Devices. ELEC6256 has higher requirements on the desired learning outcomes, which will be assessed by a different examination.

This module is taught together with ELEC3207 Nanoelectronic Devices. The two modules are mutually exclusive and you may not take both modules.
