In this paper, scaling trends and the associated challenges are discussed from the perspective of the 2001 International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) for both high-performance and low-power logic technologies. Starting from the overall chip circuit requirements, MOSFET and front-end process integration technology requirements, scaling trends, and challenges are discussed, as well as some of the key potential solutions to the challenges, along with the long-term issues and possible solutions for mobility improvement and optimal scaling for very small transistors. Potential solutions include eventual use of high-k gate dielectrics, metal gate electrodes, and perhaps nonclassical MOSFET devices such as double-gate SOI
