The SOI Industry Consortium is actively engaged in supporting the industry’s transition to fully-depleted (FD) technologies. FD technologies offer: better electrostatics, so you’ve got stronger gate control; and lower channel doping, which enables better SRAMs that can operate stably at lower supply voltages – resulting in power savings of up to 40%. There are two […]

Charting the Way for Porting SOCs to FD-SOI

Posted by (SOI Industry Consortium) on November 24, 2011
In ASN #18, Special supplement: SOI Industry Consortium

Members of the SOI Consortium have released a major white paper addressing the porting of SOC designs from bulk to FD-SOI. SOC designers face a critical juncture at 20/22nm. Choices must be made whether to stay on bulk CMOS, change to a FinFET architecture, or move to planar, fully-depleted (FD) SOI-based CMOS. Power management and […]
