Workshop FDSOI San Francisco 2012

Want to learn first-hand what’s going on in the world of FD-SOI? (aka Fully-Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator)

The SOI Industry Consortium, CEA-Leti and Soitec are organizing the 6th edition of the Fully Depleted Workshop. Presentations will be given by experts from ST, ARM, IBM, Leti, UCBerkeley, Soitec, Accelicon & the SOI Consortium.

It’s a full-day event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in San Francisco, California, on February 24th following the ISSCC conference (which runs February 19-23). Registration for this free event is now open – click here.

The workshop is designed to give chip designers and manufacturers the latest information and insights on using FD-SOI technology to produce more power-efficient ICs at the right performance levels.

Planar FD-SOI and SOI-based FinFETs are serious, cost-effective contenders for the next generations of low-power, high-performance CMOS devices. They are disruptive technologies providing critical solutions for the fast-growing mobile and consumer electronics markets. However, SOI-based fully-depleted technologies also represent a clear, evolutionary path from existing bulk technologies.

The Consortium’s been giving these workshops all over the world following major conferences for a few years now, and they’ve been a terrific success. (You can download papers from the previous workshops from the Consortium website.)

This workshop is co-organized by Dr. H. Mendez from the SOI Industry Consortium, Dr. O. Faynot from CEA-Leti and Dr. C. Mazure from Soitec.

Feedback from previous workshops has been excellent. This edition is addressing product, design and technology, and provides an excellent window onto the fast-growing the fully depleted (FD) ecosystem.

The workshop will provide breakfast, coffee break and lunch to allow time for informal discussions. Lively discussions with the speakers always follow.

Here’s a preview of program – you won’t want to miss it.
