Multigate FET technology creates faster, more efficient ICs

Is there any limit to how small circuits can get. It seems that whenever there is an obstacle a solution is found.

“Addressing the challenges in ever-shrinking ICs of maintaining functionality while consuming less energy in a smaller space, researchers at semiconductor solutions provider Infineon (Munich, Germany) have developed what is presented as the first complex circuit fabricated using 65-nm multigate FET (MGFET) technology. With a footprint approximately 30% smaller than devices using current single-gate technology, the new transistors have quiescent current a factor of 10 lower with the same functions and performance.

Fabricated in three dimensions using conventional manufacturing processes and materials, the gate electrode of the transistor encloses the depletion potential barrier on several sides (multigates), thus offering three times the contact surface to ensure that the transistor can be really switched off. The MGFET prototype created contains more than 3,000 active transistors and is as powerful as today’s mature technologies, but consumes as little as half as much energy.”

    The newest Intel chips are already down to 45nm tech.

    AMD is still on 65nm tough, I wonder if they’ll license this tech to get back into the competition.

    Infineon as far as I know only manufactures RAM. They make the fastest RAM chips and were the only ones making DDR500. I have no clue what they offer in DDR2.
