Keeping Moore's law going to 7 nanometers.


Future transistors: Eliminating EXCESS: In the next few years, traditional planar CMOS field-effect transistors
will be replaced by alternate architectures that boost the gate's control of the channel. The UTB SOI
replaces the bulk silicon channel with a thin layer of silicon mounted on insulator. The FinFET
turns the transistor channel on its side and wraps the gate around three sides. Illustration: Emily Cooper
