This paper demonstrates the use of decision models for the evaluation of emerging logic device technologies for future semiconductor industry. The objective of the decision model discussed in this paper is to choose the optimum emerging logic device technologies among some of the alternatives that have been developed for years. A hierarchical decision model (HDM) was selected as the tool and a model was constructed to meet this objective. Density, performance, power, compatibility and readiness in year 2018 were identified as the five criteria to support the objective described above. The alternatives were chosen among all the emerging technology devices related to semiconductor industry. The pair wise comparison is used to determine the relative impact of each criterion towards the main objective. Once these steps are established, the model can be calculated; comparisons between the alternatives will be made and the best logic device to choose will be recommended based upon the criteria.
