Scaling Challenges of Floating Gate Non-Volatile Memory and Si Nanowire (SiNW) based Gate-All-Around (GAA) Structure as the Future Flash Memory Device

The high demands from consumer electronics have resulted in the requirements of massive storage capabilities. This study presents the challenges and issues related to the floating gate memory device. Each component of the gate stack, which consist of the tunnel oxide layer, the inter-poly dielectric (IPD) and the poly-Si floating gate are looked at. In resolving the relating issues, the 3D NAND architectures which adopt the GAA configuration with floating gate structure are reviewed. In conjunction with the proposed device, the modelling and simulation work are studied. Simulations are carried out to evaluate the performance of various floating gate structures which can be extended to obtain compact models for SPICE-like circuit simulation.




Razali Ismail received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Nottingham, Nottingham, U.K. in 1980 and 1983 respectively and the Ph.D. degree from Cambridge University, Cambridge, U.K., in 1989.

In 1984 he joined the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia as a lecturer in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. He has held various faculty positions including as Head of Department and Chief Editor of the university journal. In 1985, he began his PhD work at the Department of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton, Southampton, U.K. From 1987 to 1989, he continued his research work at the Department of Engineering, Cambridge University, Cambridge, U.K. where he completed his Ph.D. degree in microelectronics.

His main research interest is in the field of microelectronics which includes the Modelling and Simulation of IC Fabrication Process and Modelling of Semiconductor Devices. His current research interest is in the emerging area of nanoelectronics devices focusing on the use of carbon based materials and novel device structures. He has published more than 170 papers in internationally refereed indexed journals and conference proceedings.
