Designers using or thinking of moving to FD-SOI now have a LinkedIn group of their own: the FD-SOI Design Community. It’s an open group, and was started just a few days ago.
As noted in the group profile: “(…)FD-SOI technology opens the door to new design opportunities. This group was created to discuss and share new design opportunities in the field of digital (processors, ASIC, …), analog (IO, RF, …) and memory (SRAM, Flash, … ) circuits.”
It was started by Jean-Philippe Noel, a memory design engineer at STMicroelectronics. In its first 24 hours, the group had already attracted members from ST, IBM, ARM, Soitec, Leti, UCBerkeley and more. Click here to join.
There’s also the growing SOI User Group, with its veritable “who’s who in SOI” membership roster.
SOI-based discussions across a wide range of LinkedIn groups – be they about FD-SOI, FinFET, RF, SOCs, analog, memory, MEMS, photonics or more – typically generate lively and informed input. In the mega Semiconductor Professional’s Group (now almost 70K strong), discussions around SOI-based technologies often shoot to the top of the leader board.
So good things should come out of this new FD-SOI Design Community group – a group whose time has clearly come! See you there?
