CMC offers access to the GlobalFoundries® 12 nm FinFET technologies. The 12LP technology is targeted for high-performance, power-efficient SoC applications in demanding, high-volume applications. 3D FinFET transistor technology provides best-in-class performance and power with significant cost advantages from 12nm area scaling. FinFET benefits include high drive current, superior mismatch and Vmin and >10x SER (soft error rate) reduction vs planar technology. FinFET improves Subthreshold Swing/Slope (SS) vs the planar FET, thanks to the better electrostatic control over the channel. For the same reason, FinFET has much less Body Effect, higher output impedance, and higher intrinsic gain.
CMC Microsystems offers access to GlobalFoundries technologies via its cost-shared multi-project wafer runs. To access this technology, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
