SOI group says technology is viable for 20nm mobile and consumer devices

Posted on Sunday, February 13 2011 @ 01:00:02 CET by

EE Times reports that the SOI Industry Consortium has announced that the FD-SOI technology is viable for 20nm chips for mobile and consumer devices and perhaps beyond:
Jockeying for position in the next-generation transistor race, the SOI Industry Consortium claims to have made more progress in bringing fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) technology for next-generation mobile products.

The consortium members-ARM, Globalfoundries, IBM, STMicroelectronics, Soitec, and CEA-Letiā€”have announced results of an assessment and characterization of FD-SOI, saying that the technology is viable for mobile and consumer devices at the 20-nm node and perhaps beyond. The group has demonstrated the benefits of planar FD-SOI technology for these applications based on an ARM processor.

I saw that......

this could actually be really good news, it seems that the cost challenges of SOI substrate have been overcome by a simpler processing. Physics is on FD-SOI side.

Now the is a question is who do you believe in the mobile space, intel or ARM.. ?
