SOI-based news from IBM (which has now shipped more than 100 million SOI chips):
• Cu-32 Custom Logic dramatically increases memory capacity and processing speeds of chips used in fiber-optic and wireless networks, and in such gear as routers and switches.
• CMOS-7HV process technology for powermanagement semiconductors targets manufacturers in consumer electronics, industrial, automotive, digital media and alternative-energy. It can lower costs and integrate the functionality of 3 or 4 chips into just one.
• Heralded as an enabler for future exascale processors, a patented new chip technology called CMOS Integrated Silicon Nanophotonics integrates transistors and nanophotonic devices in the same silicon layer, improving integration density over 10X.
