Semiconductor Technology from A to Z

Everything about semiconductors and wafer fabrication

Evolution of the physical gate length in micro processors (MPU)

The values represent the real/printed gate length of MOS field effect transistors on the wafer; these correlate approximately to the effective channel length. In the past the smallest structure (half pitch) was used as indication of size.



Note: this data make no claim to be complete but should give a brief overview of semiconductor industries development.
