Fin-type field-effect transistors (FinFETs) are promising substitutes for bulk CMOS at the nanoscale. FinFETs are double-gate devices. The two gates of a FinFET can either be shorted for higher perfomance or independently controlled for lower leakage or reduced transistor count. This gives rise to a rich design space. This chapter provides an introduction to various interesting FinFET logic design styles, novel circuit designs, and layout considerations.
