CEA-Leti and STMicroelectronics presented an order-of-magnitude-faster FD-SOI Ultra-Wide-Voltage Range (UWVR) DSP at ISSCC ’14. The device was produced by ST in 28nm UTBB FD-SOI. It allows body-bias-voltage scaling from 0V to +2V, decreases minimum circuit operating voltage and supports clock-frequency operation of 460MHz at 400mV. “This demonstration DSP shows that FD-SOI is blazing the trail […]
