    Abstract: The scaling of CMOS technology dimensions has led to phenomenal growth in transistor density and performance during the last four decades. However, recently the industry has started to experience significant challenges in achieving historical transistor performance gains through traditional dimensional scaling. Intel has been at the forefront in addressing these challenges by successfully driving transistor innovations from research phase to mainstream CMOS manufacturing. Implementation of uniaxial strained-silicon transistors at the 90nm node and the “HiK+Metal Gate” transistors for the 45nm node are two excellent examples of major innovations by Intel which have demonstrated dramatic performance enhancement. After a general review of technology evolution trends, I will discuss how these specific innovations have enabled dramatic performance enhancement for the recent CMOS nodes and describe specific challenges which had to be overcome to expedite their implementation into mainstream CMOS manufacturing.

    In the second part of my talk, I will present how future innovations in device architecture, novel process modules and material systems have the potential to successfully address upcoming scaling challenges in a power-limited era. This talk will highlight a list of open fundamental challenges which need to be successfully addressed before these new innovations can be implemented into mainstream CMOS technology.

    Directions: PCC Willow Creek Center is accessible by car off 185th Avenue, and by MAX at the Willow Creek/SW 185th Ave stop.
