This paper investigates the effect of optimizing the transistor finger width on the performance of high-speed analogue circuits in deep sub-micron processes, demonstrated in a 28nm High-K/Metal Gate (HKMG) CMOS technology process. Silicon proven results demonstrate that the oscillator with a finger width of 440nm gives the best performance based on the Figure of Merit (=142) among the benchmark design examples used.

Abstract

This paper investigates the effect of optimizing the transistor finger width on the performance of high-speed analogue circuits in deep sub-micron processes, demonstrated in a 28nm High-K/Metal Gate (HKMG) CMOS technology process. Silicon proven results demonstrate that the oscillator with a finger width of 440nm gives the best performance based on the Figure of Merit (=142) among the benchmark design examples used.
