If you’re going to be at the upcoming International Symposium on VLSI Technology, Systems and Applications (aka VLSI-TSA), you won’t want to miss the FD-SOI Technology Forum on Monday night, April 22nd, 2013.
(Not to worry if you won’t be in Taiwan – these workshops are now in their 5th year, and the presentations from all the workshops are posted on the SOI Consortium website.)
This year’s forum, organized by the SOI Industry Consortium in partnership with IBM and GlobalFoundries, will be held at the Ambassador Hotel in Hsinchu, Taiwan, from 6:45pm to 9:00pm. These are very popular, lively, and well-attended events (with good food!), so be sure to sign up now.
The focus is fully depleted technologies for highly energy-efficient System-on-Chip applications, which has already begun at the 28nm node, and includes competitive comparisons and product-level results for SoC apps.
We just got the final agenda – here it is:
6:45 – Doors open
7:00 – Introductions
7:05 – Business Overview: Mobile SoC Market Forecast and Meeting the Technology Requirements
Handel Jones, Chairman & CEO of International Business Strategies, IBS Inc.
7:20 – Panel Session: Are the Fully Depleted SOI Technology Partners Ready for the Mobile Challenge?
Moderator: Handel Jones, Chairman & CEO IBS Inc.
Subramani Kengeri, VP, GlobalFoundries
Bruce Kellerman, Senior Director, MEMC
Christophe Maleville, GM – Soitec
Mr. Noto, Director – SEH
Andrzej Strojwas, CTO – PDF
8:00 – SoC Differentiation using FDSOI – A Manufacturing Partner’s Perspective
Subramani Kengeri, VP, Advanced Technology Architecture, GlobalFoundries
8:30 – FINFET Isolation Approaches and Ramifications
Terence Hook, Senior Technical Staff, R&D Center, IBM
9:00 – Concluding remarks
