EE Times reports Samsung is running 28nm FD-SOI wafers for STMicroelectronics. Products based on the process are expected to hit the consumer electronics market in 2016:
Low does not identify customers beyond ST and Freescale but says there are more customers operating in "all the market segments, especially IoT, where the cost and ultra-low power combination is a very powerful one." FDSOI chips are expected to be in consumer electronics in 2016 but to find them in sectors such as communications infrastructure, networking and automotive will take longer because of the more arduous qualification requirements, said Low.
