Fully Depleted Workshop Covers Fully Depleted SOI Technology

The SOI Industry Consortium, CEA-Leti and Soitec are organizing a workshop on fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) technology for advanced semiconductor architectures. The forum, which includes technical presentations and discussions, will take place in San Francisco, California on February 24, 2012. The event provides semiconductor IC designers and manufacturers with the latest information and insights on using FD-SOI wafers to produce more power efficient ICs at the performance required for applications in mobile and consumer electronics.

Planar FD-SOI and SOI-based FinFETs are disruptive technologies, and serious contenders for the next generations of low-power, high-performance architectures. FD-SOI assures an evolutionary path from existing bulk technologies for fabricating next generation low-power, cost-effective CMOS devices for the fast-growing mobile and consumer electronics markets. Fully depleted transistors reach the required circuit speed for data-processing performance while consuming very little power, a critical need in portable devices such as smart phones and tablets.
