FD-SOI bests FinFETs for mobile multimedia SOCs? ST says yes.


In a recent and excellent article in ASN by Thomas Skotnicki, Director of the Advanced Devices Program at STMicro, he explains in a very clear and accessible way why FD-SOI with ultra-thin Body & Box (UTBB) is a better solution for mobile, multimedia SOCs than FinFETs -- starting at the 28nm node and running clearly through 8nm.  It is based on the paper he presented at the 2011 IEEE SOI C... » read more
