The “SOI Technology: Semiconductor Perception & Awareness Study”
should change the way the industry thinks about SOI.
According to an SOI Industry Consortium and GSA survey, SOI is a real, here-and-now solution for the industry’s most pressing challenge: lowering power consumption.
108 GSA members responded, 85% of whom are responsible for chip design at their companies, primarily in the consumer sector. Almost a quarter said they have already used SOI in prototypes or in full production. Another 65% said they were interested in using it.
Low power is the #1 SOI driver – and it’s a huge concern.
Reducing power is something designers are willing to pay for.
Performance counts, too.
Most came from mid-sized companies using mainstream technology.
