New Paradigm of Nano Device – From More Moore to More than Moore; and NDL introduction

Speaker: Wen-Kuan Yeh
Affiliation: National University of Kaohsiung

As MOSFETs are scaled down to sub-10nm and below, power consumption is the major limitation to maintain device performance well. Thus, how to suppress the device’s sub-threshold leakage and gate leakage is the key issue for sub-10nm MOSFET especially for high performance/lower power system. In order to scale MOSFET following Moore’s law continuously, there are some candidates are introduced to replace conventional MOSFET including FinFET, GAA transistor, and 2D FET. This talk will explain semiconductor device trend and related advanced technology development especially for coming 7nm technology regime, and other specific device for more than Moore application for sensor, energy harvesting and Internet on Thing (IoT) will be also explained.

Director Yeh will introduce the facility and mission of National Nano Device Laboratories (NDL), a leading government lab at Taiwan, to pursue possible international research collaboration.

Wen-Kuan Yeh was born in Hsinchu, Taiwan in 1964. He received his Ph.D. in electronics engineering from National Chiao-Tung University, Taiwan in 1996. In 1989-90, he worked at Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation (tsmc) Research and Development Division to work on sub-um CMOSFET and his M.S. thesis. During 1996 to 2000, he joined Unite Microelectronic Corporation (UMC), Technology & Process Development Division, as a Research Scientist. He is currently a full Professor of Electrical Engineering Department at National University of Kaohsiung and also serves as the General Director of National Nano Device Laboratories (NDL), a leading government lab at Taiwan. He is a chair of IEEE EDS Tainan Local Chapter. He has published 5 edited books, over 100 peer reviewed papers, 3 book chapters, and over 100 patents. His recent work is focused on the field of nano-scaled FETs, SOI FET, and 3D FET.
