Thermal phenomena are having an increasing influence on drive and leakage currents in modern transistors. This trend is accelerated for confined-geometry devices, which include thermally-resistive interfaces and materials with low thermal conductivity (e.g. SiO2, Si1-xGex). This paper summarizes the nanotransistor thermal design challenges and reviews the latest advancements in electro-thermal modeling.
