MST Drives Higher Speed and Lower Power

MST Device Enhancements

Atomera’s MST technology provides device enhancements that enable significant improvements in a variety of circuit designs. A 28nm foundry SPICE model, based on MST silicon device data, applied to logic and processor designs showed a remarkable boost in performance. The results are shown in the charts below:
  • Because MST shows improved TDDB, 100mV higher overdrive bias can be used
  • Higher VDD offers the potential to increase switching speeds >30%, with leakage levels close to baseline levels
MST boosts logic switching speeds by 15-20% across voltage and temperature
MST boosts logic switching speeds by 15-20% across voltage and temperature
MST shows lower leakage currents by 10-15%
MST shows lower leakage currents by 10-15%
