FinFET Technology
Definition
Since the fabrication of MOSFET, the minimum channel length has been shrinking continuously. The motivation behind this decrease has been an increasing interest in high-speed devices and in very large-scale integrated circuits. The sustained scaling of conventional bulk device requires innovations to circumvent the barriers of fundamental physics constraining the conventional MOSFET device structure. The limits most often cited are control of the density and location of dopants providing high I on /I off ratio and finite sub threshold slope and quantum-mechanical tunneling of carriers through thin gate from drain to source and from drain to body.

The channel depletion width must scale with the channel length to contain the off-state leakage I off. This leads to high doping concentration, which degrade the carrier mobility and causes junction edge leakage due to tunneling. Furthermore, the dopant profile control, in terms of depth and steepness, becomes much more difficult. The gate oxide thickness tox must also scale with the channel length to maintain gate control, proper threshold voltage VT and performance. The thinning of the gate dielectric results in gate tunneling leakage, degrading the circuit performance, power and noise margin.

Alternative device structures based on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology have emerged as an effective means of extending MOS scaling beyond bulk limits for mainstream high-performance or low-power applications .Partially depleted (PD) SOIwas the first SOI technology introduced for high-performance microprocessor applications. The ultra-thin-body fully depleted (FD) SOI and the non-planar FinFET device structures promise to be the potential "future" technology/device choices. In these device structures, the short-channel effect is controlled by geometry, and the thin Si film limits the off-state leakage. For effective suppression of the off-state leakage, the thickness of the Si film must be less than one quarter of the channel length. The desired VT is achieved by manipulating the gate work function, such as the use of midgap material or poly-SiGe. Concurrently, material enhancements, such as the use of a) high-k gate material and b) strained Si channel for mobility and current drive improvement, have been actively pursued. As scaling approaches multiple physical limits and as new device structures and materials are introduced, unique and new circuit design issues continue to be presented. In this article, we review the design challenges of these emerging technologies with particular emphasis on the implications and impacts of individual device scaling elements and unique device structures on the circuit design. We focus on the planar device structures, from continuous scaling of PD SOI to FD SOI, and new materials such as strained-Si channel and high-k gate dielectric.


Partially Depleted [PD] SOI
The PD floating-body MOSFET was the first SOI transistor generically adopted for high-performance applications, primarily due to device and processing similarities to bulk CMOS device.
The PD SOI device is largely identical to the bulk device, except for the addition of a buried oxide ("BOX") layer. The active Si film thickness is larger than the channel depletion width, thus leaving a quasi-neutral "floating" body region underneath the channel. The V T of the device is completely decoupled from the Si film thickness, and the doping profiles can be tailored for any desired VT. The device offers several advantages for performance/ power improvement:

1) Reduced junction capacitance,

2) Lower average threshold due to positive V BS during switching.

3) Dynamic loading effects, in which the load device tends to be in high VT state during switching The performance comes at the cost of some design complexity resulting from the floating body of the device, such as

1) Parasitic bipolar effect and

2) Hysteretic VT variation.

MAJOR DESIGN ISSUES :
Gate Oxide Tunneling Leakage

Self heating

Soft Error Rate

Strained-Si channel And High-k Gate


Features of finFET:
Finfet consists of a vertical Si fin controlled by self_aligned double gate.

Main Features of Finfet are:-

Ultra thin Si fin for suppression of short channel effects

Raised source/drain to reduce parasitic resistance and improve currrent drive

Symmetric gates yield great performance,but can built asymmetric gates that target VT .

.
Finfets are designed to use multiple fins to achieve larger channel widths.

Source/Drain pads connect the fins in parallel.

As the number of fins is increased ,the current through the device increases.

.For eg: A 5 fin device 5 times more current than single fin device.

FinFET-DGCMOS Process Flow in Detail:
A conventional SOI wafer can be used as starting material for:-

Sacrificial oxidations.

Masked ion implantations.

specialized passive elements.

Gate deposition and etch.

APPLICATIONS OF FinFET:
DG devices like Fin FETs offer unique opportunities for microprocessor design.compared to a planar process in the same technology node,

FinFETs have reduced channel and gate leakage currents. This can lead to considerable power reductions when converting a planar design to fin FET technology.

Utilizing fin FETs would lead to a reduction in total power by a factor of two, without compromising performance.

Another possibility to save power arises when both gates can be controlled separately.




The second gate can be used to control the threshold voltage of the device, thereby allowing fast switching on one side and reduced leakage currents when circuits are idle.

Finally, separate access to both gates could also be used to design simplified logic gates.

This would also reduce power, and save chip area, leading to smaller, more cost-efficient designs. However chip designs using finFETs must cope with quantization of device width.

since every single transistor consists of an integral number of fins,each fin having the same height.


SIMULATION OF finFET USING DEVICE3D:
This article will present the simulation methodology of a self-aligned double-gate MOSFET structure (FinFET) using SILVACO 3-D simulation suite.

Device Features:-

A transistor is formed in a vertical ultra –thin Si fin and is controlled by a double-gate, which considerably reduced short channel effects.

the two gates are self aligned and are aligned to S/D.

S/D is raised to reduce the access resistance.

Up to date gate process: low temperature, high -k dielectrics can be used .


Device Simulation:
The 3-D SILVACO simulation suite including Device3D, DevEdit3D and TonyPlot3D, allows device engineers to study deep sub-micron devices which are 3-D by nature like the FinFET presented above.

A 3-D FinFET structure was designed by using DevEdit3D. This is an advanced tool for structure editing and mesh generation.


CONCLUSION:

Simulations show that this structure should be scalable down to 10 nm.


This structure was fabricated by forming the S\D before the gate.

Further performance improvement is possible by using a thinner gate dielectric and thinner spacers.

FinFET is similar to the conventional MOSFET with regard to layout and fabrication.




. It is an attractive successor to the single gate MOSFET by virtue of its superior electrostatic properties and comparative ease of manufacturability.

Industrial research groups such as Intel, IBM and AMD have shown interests in developing similar devices, as well as mechanisms to migrate mask layouts from Bulk-MOS to FinFETs.

Design Issues such as high quality ultra thin fin lithography and source\drain resistance need to be resolved and a high-yield process flow needs to be established by process researchers before FinFETs can be used in commercial.

INTRODUCTION


The introduction of FinFET Technology has opened new chapters in Nano-technology. Simulations show that FinFET structure should be scalable down to 10 nm. Formation of ultra thin fin enables suppressed short channel effects. It is an attractive successor to the single gate MOSFET by virtue of its superior electrostatic properties and comparative ease of manufacturability. Since the fabrication of MOSFET, the minimum channel length has been shrinking continuously. The motivation behind this decrease has been an increasing interest in high speed devices and in very large scale integrated circuits.
The sustained scaling of conventional bulk device requires innovations to circumvent the barriers of fundamental physics constraining the conventional MOSFET device structure.The limits most often cited are control of the density and location of dopants providing high I on /I off ratio and finite subthreshold slope and quantum-mechanical tunneling of carriers through thin gate from drain to source and from drain to body. The channel depletion width must scale with the channel length to contain the off-state leakage I off. This leads to high doping concentration, which degrade the carrier mobility and causes junction edge leakage due to tunneling. Furthermore, the dopant profile control, in terms of depth and steepness, becomes much more difficult. The gate oxide thickness tox must also scale with the channel length to maintain gate control, proper threshold voltage VT and performance. The thinning of the gate dielectric results in gate tunneling leakage, degrading the circuit performance, power and noise margin.


ARCHITECTURE


This method provides a SiGe-based bulk integration scheme for generating FinFET devices on a bulk Si substrate in which a simple etch, mask, ion implant set of sequences have been added to accomplish good junction isolation while maintaining the low capacitance benefits of FinFETs. Specifically, the method of the present invention includes the steps of: providing a structure including a bottom Si layer and a patterned stack comprising a SiGe layer and a top Si layer on said bottom Si layer; forming a well region and isolation regions via implantation within said bottom Si layer; forming an undercut region beneath said top Si layer by etching back said SiGe layer; and filling said undercut with a dielectric to provide device isolation, wherein said dielectric has an outer vertical edge that is aligned to an outer vertical edge of said top Si layer.


ADVANTAGES
Due to their high immunity to short channel effects, importance of MOSFET with multiple gates (MUGFET) or FinFETs are increased by technologists for sub-100nm. Especially for the digital applications, numerous FinFET realizations have reported with effective and improved feasibility, economy and performance with respect to up to date CMOS bulk technologies.
Since, the FinFETs have better electrostatic channel control characteristic with improved turn off, they are considered as promising candidate for the future‟s fulfilling CMOS device demands.

In addition to excellent channel control, the FinFET transistors also offer approximately twice the on-current because of the two channels, even without channel doping. This is beneficial for the carrier mobility and results in a low gate leakage at the same time
