• Intel 10 nm Logic Process Analysis (Cannon Lake)

  • TechInsights has found the long-awaited Cannon Lake - the Intel 10 nm logic process inside the i3-8121U CPU, used in the Lenovo IdeaPad330.

    This innovation boasts the following:

    • Logic transistor density of 100.8 mega transistors per mm2, increasing 10nm density 2.7X over the 14nm node
    • Utilizes third generation FinFET technology
    • Minimum gate pitch of Intel’s 10 nm process shrinks from 70 nm to 54 nm
    • Minimum metal pitch shrinks from 52 nm to 36 nm

    Process Highlights:

    • Deepest scaled pitches of current 10 nm and upcoming 7 nm technologies
    • First Co metallization and Ru usage in BEOL
    • New self-aligned patterning schemes at contact and BEOL

    Design Highlights:

    • Hyperscaling via 6.2-Track high density library
    • Contact on active gate (COAG) cell-level usage
