Logic Technology: βoosted Transistor


Scaling of semiconductor transistor, as described by Moore’s law, has created advances in electronic devices in all aspects of our lives. After 50 years, it is becoming extremely challenging to continuously scale the semiconductor transistor. Indeed, we hear a lot about the slowing down or even the death of Moore’s law. Even if the technical feasibility can be overcome, the cost to fabricate silicon below 10 nm node is forecasted to exceed $10 billion.


Zeno’s βoosted transistor technology provides up to 4x power-performance product gain within the same technology node. The βoosted transistor has been demonstrated at 28 nm (presented at ESSDERC 2016) and 14 nm (presented at SSDM 2018) technology nodes.
