The leakage current
of logic blocks can be given as
Victor Koldyaev and titled, "A Leakage Current
Model for SOI based Floating Body Memory that Includes the Poole-Frenkel Effect (PFE)," describes for the first time how the leakage current
of SOI based floating body memory has been modeled and compared to experimental Z-RAM data, taking into account oxide/SOI Dit and PFE.
Boesca and colleagues, reveals how strategic doping enables significant improvements in capacitance equivalent thickness (CET) and capacitor leakage current
, resulting in a metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitor suitable for the 40 nm technology generation DRAMs.
Moreover, an additional compatible process can be utilized to reduce leakage current
to substantially offset dark current, perhaps the biggest obstacle in improving CIS chip image quality.
The low leakage current
of 1nA reduces voltage offset.
For designs at 90nm and below, managing leakage current
has become one of the key design challenges.
It has ultra low-power write/erase and no leakage current
To search for possible leakage currents
, Lanzerotti and his colleagues, along with two Italian researchers, used a telecommunications cable that AT&T was laying across the Atlantic.
This is said to be invaluable to high voltage applications because without it, contaminants on the surface of the insulators become wet and produce a conductive layer, which contributes to an increase in leakage currents
, dryband arcing and ultimately flashover, according to the company.
The three-year research project, co-funded by the European Commission, aims to extend battery life and reduce the power consumed by electronics by finding solutions to controlling leakage currents
in CMOS designs below 65nm.
