3.1 Introduction

The semiconductor industry is facing a period where the survival of mature technologies is being questioned. Short-channel effects, leakage, and variability are suited as insurmountable obstacles that standard metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) would not be able to overcome in the ultimate nodes. In the case of the memory field, the situation is analogous. ...
