About ASN

As our name indicates, Advanced Substrate News (ASN) covers topics related to chips built on advanced and engineered substrates.  We put a special emphasis on silicon-on-insulator (SOI).

The goal is to demonstrate the added value of advanced substrates across the electronics supply chain.  We want to “connect-the-dots” from the starting substrate through chip design and manufacturing to the end-user, answering the question:  “Why do advanced substrates make a difference?”

The SOI ecosystem, in particular, is a dedicated, enthusiastic and fast-growing community.  ASN both heralds their accomplishments, and provides a platform from which they can speak.

First launched in 2005 as a paper and electronic publication, ASN launched this dynamic website in 2010.  While we continue to publish a paper and electronic edition several times a year, this ASN website is continually updated with the latest Industry Buzz, hot new papers in our PaperLinks section and upcoming events.
