  • Contains latest research updates and presents both the theory behind FinFETs operation and the most important applications such as SRAMs
  • Provides device and capacitance analysis using symmetric and asymmetrical tri-gate architectures
  • Introduces various FinFET structures including advanced structures comprehensively
  • Presents a non-conventional structure of FinFETs in terms of proposal, mechanism, impacts
  • Features separate chapter on digital circuit and SRAM circuit design using FinFETs


This book focuses towards the spacer engineering aspects of novel MOS-based device-circuit co-design in sub-20nm technology node, its process complexity, variability and reliabilities issues. This book comprehensively explores the FinFET/tri-gate architectures with their circuit/SRAM suitability and tolerance to random statistical variations. This book concentrates on last ten years of cutting-edge research on high-permittivity materials and its usage in FinFETs either as gate-dielectric or spacer engineering. It specifically targets spacer engineering, discussing its pros and cons with FinFETs covers complete device to circuit perspective while exploring its variability aspects also.
