The use of multigate CMOS devices for extending the life of planar CMOS is discussed. As the industry continues to scale devices to meet the various system-on-a-chip (SoC) applications in the future, several types of transistor designs from planar to vertical single-gate (SG), double-gate (DG), and multigate (MG) are emerging. The changes for improved device performance which are to be made for its scaling and extendibility are also elaborated.
