The emergence of multiple transistor technology options at today's deep submicron process nodes introduces a variety of power, performance, and area tradeoffs. This session will start with an overview of the FinFET and Fully-Depleted Silicon-on-Insulator devices (FD-SOI, also known as Ultra-Thin Body SOI), in comparison to traditional bulk planar transistor technology. The session will then delve into a detailed discussion of the architectural and circuit implementation tradeoffs of these new offerings, to assist designers in making the right choice for their target application.
