Power, Performance, Cost. FDSOI lets you pick any three. Want proof? How about an ARM Cortex-M0 processor core example?

Last week, the first session of the International SoC Conference focused on FDSOI (fully depleted silicon-on-insulator) IC fabrication. Now if your thinking resembles mine before I watched this presentation, you think that FDSOI is an advanced IC-fabrication process that gives … Continue reading

What can you do with 45nm SOI? A lot, it turns out

Cadence just published a story about working with IBM on developing advanced Spice-level simulation models for IBM’s advanced SOI (silicon on insulator) IC processes to achieve better correlation between the circuit simulation results and the actual silicon. Now you only … Continue reading
