On the Reliability of Micro-Electronic Devices: An Introductory Lecture on Negative Bias Temperature Instability
out of 5 stars
28 Sep 2005 | | Contributor(s):: Muhammad A. Alam
In 1930s Bell Labs scientists chose to focus on Siand Ge, rather than better known semiconductors like Ag2S and Cu2S, mostly because of their reliable performance. Their choice was rewarded with the invention of bipolar transistors several years later. In 1960s, scientists at Fairchild worked...
Self-Heating and Scaling of Silicon Nano-Transistors
05 Aug 2004 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Pop
The most often cited technological roadblock of nanoscale electronics is the "power problem," i.e. power densities and device temperatures reaching levels that will prevent their reliable operation. Technology roadmap (ITRS) requirements are expected to lead to more heat dissipation problems,...
