Abstract

Polycrystalline-silicon (poly-Si) and crystalline-silicon (crystal-Si) channel FinFET CMOS inverters were successfully fabricated and the variations of threshold voltage (Vt) for their individual n- and p-channel transistors and the logic gate Vt (VThc) for the inverters were systematically investigated. It was found that poly-Si n- and p-channel devices show about 3 and 5 times larger σVt values, respectively and about 2 times larger σVThc as compared to those in crystal-Si channel ones. The calculated σVTHC values by using the error propagation low are good agreement with experimental results.
