FD-SOI Can Deliver Leading-Edge European IC Process Technology

FD-SOI Can Deliver Leading-Edge European IC Process Technology no comment david manners May 22, 2013 Next month customers can start prototyping on STMicroelectronics’ 28nm FD-SOI process which delivers 30% better performance than 28nm bulk CMOS, according to ST’s CTO and CMO Jean-Marc Chery. From there the planned progress down the micron trail to 14nm is dramatic: another 30% improvement at the same operating voltage at 14nm; a 50% reduction in power at the same speed at 14nm; and a 40% reduction in die area at 14nm. The figures can be further improved by biassing. Forward body bias on 14nm FD-SOI gives another 15% performance at the same operating voltage; reverse body bias reduces power by another 10% while maintaining the same speed. These are the advantages which may have persuaded the EC and 19 partner organisations in seven European countries to stump up $360m milli...
