Technology viable DC performance elements for Si/SiGe channel CMOS FinFTT

View publication


Low Ge content SiGe-based CMOS FinFET is one of the promising technologies [1-2] offering solutions for both high performance and low power applications. In this paper, we established a competitive SiGe-based CMOS FinFET baseline and examined various elements for high performance offering. The performance elements in gate stack, channel doping, contact resistance, and junction have been explored to provide a cumulative 20% / 25% (n/pFET) performance enhancement. These elements provide a viable path towards performance enhancement for future technology nodes.
