A new Semico Research study estimates the impact of SOI on the bottom line. As semiconductor process technologies move down the nanometer scale from 90nm to 65nm and smaller, the benefits of silicon-oninsulator (SOI) wafers in reducing junction capacitance, improving the short-channel effect, reducing leakage and decreasing soft error rates become more and more attractive.
