This chapter explains why the limits of scaling faced by the bulk planar MOS transistors can be overcome with the ultra-thin-body transistor structures, of which the fully-depleted silicon-on oxide (FDSOI) is one and the FinFET is another. It also explains what constitutes a good compact model and the role that the BSIM models play in the semiconductor industry.
