The FINFET transistor: Why and How?

FinFET is touted as a 3D transistor. But the 3D structure is not the reason for its superior scalability. The reason is the thinness of the transistor body and there is another manufacturable alternative that also provides ultra thin body. This short talk will discuss the problems that the new transistors solve and how how they do it.
