Designers new to SOI will find a growing library of training materials in the “Design Clinics”, now online at the SOI Consortium website. The series includes:
- Video training: presentations from the “SOI Jump Start” training which took place in San Jose, CA on April 28, 2010. This live event was hosted by Cadence and recorded on video.
- Audio training: presentations on specific aspects of SOI design (self-heating, floating body, SRAM and so forth), with slide-by-slide audio explanations.
- PowerPoint presentations: from an SOI Design Clinic that took place in the Santa Clara Convention Center (California) on October 21, 2009, co-located with ARM TechCon3. Topics include SOI fundamentals, design tools, and design approaches for low power and high performance ICs.
