    Compound with silicon is the way ahead. | Manufacturing | Mannerisms



    With Intel, IQE has developed a narrow fin-width 3-D Tri-gate InGaAs QWFET with the steepest sub-threshold swing and smallest DIBL ever reported for any high-K III-V FET.
    Sounds impressive whatever it means.

    Gosh. still.

    This stuff is becoming indistinguishable from magick.

    SAS will explain it all to us s later.

    But I loved this bit:

    The transistors were fabricated on a semi-insulating GaAs substrate using a relaxed metamorphic buffer layer of AlyIn1-ySb to accommodate lattice mismatch, a compressively strained InSb quantum well confined between layers of AlxIn1-xSb and a Schottky barrier metal gate

    If I had the smallest DIBL ever I wouldn't be boasting about it.

    My concern is that I've just read an article on it and I'm as confused now as I was to begin with.

    I thought I understood what it was about until I got to the 10th paragraph on wikipedia and realised that

    1) I don't actually understand it
    2) chances are I never will

    I will ask my open university Physics lecturer neighbour to read that article tonight and confirm if I'm just beyond hope....

    I thought it was mainly about faster switching. I've obviously been out of the game too long.

    Isn't she lovely?

    InGaAs = Indium Gallium Arsenide? (just having a guess)
