DOC/BIS RIN: 0694-AH91 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: ●Multi-Gate Field-Effect Transistors (FET) Technology 

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) controls the export, reexport, and transfer (in-country) of dual-use and less sensitive military items through the Export Administration Regulations (EAR), including the Commerce Control List (CCL). Certain technologies, however, may not yet be listed on the CCL because they are emerging technologies. One such technology is multi-gate Field-Effect Transistor (FET) technology, which could potentially allow the development of increasingly smaller microprocessor and memory architecture. Multi-gate (FET) technology includes Gate-All-Around Field-Effect Transistors (GAAFET), Multi-Bridge Channel FETs (MBCFET), nano-sheet FETs, nano-wire FETs, and surrounding-gate transistors (SGT). This rule adds controls for multi-gate FET technology to the CCL.
