The birth of the Fin Field Effect Transistor technology is the result of constant increases in the integration levels. For many years, the basic principle Moore’s law held its ground dating back to the initial days of the integrated circuit technology. Basically, the law states that every two years, the number of transistors doubles on a given silicon area. Previously, planar designs were built on silicon on insulator or SOI substrate. However, with the introduction of FinFET, the designs now use a conducting channel, which rises above the insulator level. It then creates a fine silicon structure.

Fin Field Effect Transistor, commonly called as FinFET, is a form of a 3D or non-planar transistor. It is mainly utilized while designing modern processors. This structure is generally shaped like a fin and is called a gate electrode. The ‘fin’ forms the drain and source effectively and thus allows the flow of more volume than a conventional planar transistor for the same area. The gate wraps itself around the fin and allows more control of the channel as there is enough length for monitoring. This fin-shaped electrode helps in the operation of different gates on a single transistor.

In recent years, the Fin Field Effect Transistor technology has experienced substantial growth in adoption, especially in the integrated circuits. When compared to the traditional planar technology, the Fin Field Effect Transistor (FinFET) technology provides some considerable benefits in the design of integrated circuits.

The FinFET technology aims to offer higher levels of scalability required to ensure that the progress achieved with the swelled integration levels inside the integrated circuits are maintained.

Miniaturization has been the trend in the technology market for a now time now and with the advent of devices such as wearables the need to fit more components in limited space on devices and semiconductors is more than ever. Semiconductors have generally followed the Moore’s law and the number of transistors on a given area of silicon has doubled every two years. While semiconductors have grown smaller in size they have also successfully tackled the issue of power efficiency to enable efficient functioning of battery based devices.

All these developments in semiconductors has been made possible by the usage of Fin Field Effect Transistors, a type of non-planer or “3-D” transistor used in modern processers. The Fin Field Effect Transistor uses fin shaped gate electrode which rises above the level of insulator. The Fin-Shaped electrode on Fin Field Effect Transistor allows multiple gates to operate on a single transistor. This is one of the primary methods leveraged by a Fin Field Effect Transistor to enable space and efficiency improvements. Fin Field Effect Transistors were first introduced in 2012 by Intel with its 22-mm Ivy Bridge processors
