Semiconductor Innovation Yields Promise - EBN

Semiconductor Innovation Yields Promise - EBN

Despite challenges in the semiconductor industry, innovation continues. The evolution and refinement of a variety processes, memory technologies, and packaging technologies are creating new technology frontiers. Today, I want to take a look at some of the most interesting evolutions in the space. Silicon On Insulator (SOI) is a process technology developed to extend performance and power improvements in any given conventional bulk CMOS node. To describe it in somewhat simplistic terms, SOI consists of adding a layer of glass to conventional silicon. Due to the insulating properties of the added glass layer, transistors can be built in the silicon matrix with more current drive and in closer proximity than in conventional CMOS processes. Depending on design and library choices, one could optimize an SOI-based chip design for superior performance or greater power efficiency....
