    MoS2 TFET transistor operates at voltages as low as 0.1V

    This TFET offers 90 per cent energy efficiency benefit over state of the art MOSFETs.

    Re: MoS2 TFET transistor operates at voltages as low as 0.1V

    So if I'm understandin this right - they've figured out a way to produce a better-than-mosfet that is more efficient therby reduing power consumption as waste heat?

    Yep, exactly like that. AFAIK its a pretty major step.
    Cheers, David

    Re: MoS2 TFET transistor operates at voltages as low as 0.1V

    Interesting, but as with all tech advances it could be years before it hits market, or never.

    The EE Times article has a very 2D looking FET block model, so perhaps not something that can easily be integrated into modern FinFETs. Also, it's not clear what the switching speed of these TFETs are, or how easily they can be built with existing lithography. A quick search suggests people have been working on this material for at least 5 years :-

    Might have to wait 5 more years for that phone/watch that lasts a week on one charge.

    Re: MoS2 TFET transistor operates at voltages as low as 0.1V

    Funny, years ago I did an undergraduate dissertation on power mosfets. At the time the search was to increase the current and reverse voltage characteristics for applications such as motor control and so on. There were various technologies, one was the Vfet, which referred to in treading the junction area to support higher currents.

    Now we are at the other end of the scale!
