Silicon Valley FD-SOI 2018 Training Day is April 27th – Don’t Miss It!

Following the immense success of last year's FD-SOI training day in Silicon Valley, the SOI Consortium has another one planned for the end of Apr

Quick Preview of (Great!) FD-SOI Design Tutorial Day (14 April ’17, Silicon Valley)

Would you like to better understand FDSOI-based chip design? If you're in Silicon Valley, you're in luck. On April 14th, the SOI Consortium is or

Chenming Hu: SOI Can Empower New Transistors to 10nm and beyond

FinFET and FD-SOI transistors look different but share a common principal that allows MOSFETs to be scalable to 10nm gate length. The good, old

Important News Comes Out of Recent FD-SOI Workshop

The SOI Consortium's 6th FD-SOI workshop, held just after ISSCC, yielded some exciting news. Most of the presentations are freely available for d
