Dec. 27, 2010Planar fully depleted SOI: the technological solution against variability
It is well known that the planar fully depleted silicon-on-insulator (SOI) (FDSOI) architecture is a technological booster of the CMOS performance, thanks to better electrostatics than devices on bulk. This article shows that it also greatly improves the variability of the electrical characteristics, thanks to an undoped channel. This leads to good matching performance.

Jan. 1, 2006Book: Fully-Depleted SOI CMOS Circuits and Technology for Ultralow-Power Applications
31 of Japan's leading FD-SOI experts explain design for ultra-low-power applications. Leading experts expect the next-generation of device technology for ultra-low-power applications to be based on FD (fully-depleted) SOI MOSFETs. For circuit designers and university students who would like to learn about FD-SOI design, and get a basic understanding of the material technology and device physics, 31 experts from Japan have written a new textbook. It provides examples of unique circuit designs for ultra-low-power applications, as well as a brief history of SOI material technology and the basic operational mechanism of FD-SOI MOSFETs.
