Helping the electronics industry reap the benefits of Silicon-on-Insulator technology
Shrinking semiconductor feature sizes demonstrate that CMOS on bulk silicon is rapidly reaching its technological limits for many applications. Process complexity, variability, short-channel effects, leakage, power density, and reliability are just a few reasons why technology leaders transition to SOI.
To help IC designers and design managers evaluate and prepare for the move to SOI, the SOI Design Clinic provides a technical understanding of the significant differences between designing on SOI versus bulk silicon, and how to realize the benefits of SOI. Respected experts from the semiconductor industry and academia deliver a practical circuit design clinic, with emphasis on the major advantages of SOI and lessons learned from the transition from bulk silicon to SOI.
The next SOI Design Clinic will be co-located with ARMtechcon3 on Oct. 21, 2009 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Presented in two 3 hour sessions of live classroom instruction, from 9am to 12noon and from 2pm to 5pm. Includes lunch, admission to the ARMtechcon3 keynote session and a post-clinic reception.
