Self-heating in advanced CMOS
Transistor scaling, increase of power densities, new device architectures and materials result in strongly pronounced thermal effects, i.e. self-heating. Self-heating degrades device analogue performance, reliability and variability.
In this module:
- Origin of self-heating in advanced CMOS
- State-of-the-art approaches to characterise self-heating
- Extraction of self-heating figures of merit necessary for compact modelling
