Ultra-thin wafers for 450mm FD-SOI on schedule

While much of the focus on the impending move to 450mm has focused on the equipment challenges, the wafers themselves are of course the primordial consideration. Predictions are starting to mount up linking the move to 450mm with a move to fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI). So the question needs to be asked: will the wafers be ready? Engineered substrates like SOI wafers need to ... » read more
