A new book by two giants in SOI – Jerry Fossum of U. Florida/Gainesville and Vishal Trivedi of Freescale – delves into the Fundamentals of Ultra-Thin-Body MOSFETs and FinFETs. Available from Cambridge University Press in both hardcover and eBook formats (click here for more information), it covers theory, design and applications of FD-SOI MOSFETs and FinFETs (you can review the Table of Contents here). The book is billed as “a must-have resource” for professional engineers in the CMOS IC field who need to know about optimal nonclassical device design and integration.
ASN readers will remember that Dr. Fossum won the IEEE/EDS J. J. Ebers Award in 2004 for ‘outstanding contributions to the advancement of SOI CMOS devices and circuits through modeling’. They also may remember his concise, elegant argument back in 2007 (see article here) as to why SOI represents a pragmatic approach to FinFETs.
