While chipmakers are struggling with the FinFET based chip production below 5 nm process nodes, Samsung has planned to opt for GAA (gate all around) architecture. Samsung’s GAA redesigns the transistor, making it more power-efficient and better-performing than the existing Multi Bridge Channel FET (MBCFET™) that utilize stacked nanosheets.
Samsung’s patented MBCFET™ is formed as a nanosheet, allowing for a larger current and simpler device integration. It allows to reduce the operating voltage below 0.75 V that had been extremely difficult with FinFET. This yields to 50% less power consumption or 30% more performance at 45% less chip area compared to 7 nm FinFET technology. Also, Samsung’s GAA technology is compatible with current FinFET production line that means the today’s fab running on mature process tools and methodology can be utilized for GAA transistors. Here is the infographic to learn more about how Samsung’s GAA is advancing the future of semiconductor technology.
