EEM216A: FALL 2012 MIDTERM 2 Problem 1: Technology Scaling (10 pts) Scaling faces the issues of having to keep a constant V T (instead of scaling V T ) in order to maintain low leakage current. A possible way is to keep voltages (V DD , V T ) constant while scaling all dimensions (W, L, t ox ). The price is that the higher electrical-field causes the carrier velocity to saturate. Assume the scaling factor is S (where S > 1).

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
