Energy savings is key to product design. To support engineers in these design challenges, a group of leading companies throughout the electronics industry has formed a consortium to encourage the use of silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology. SOI technology is expected to promote the development of devices that consume less energy and have longer battery lives.
The SOI Industry Consortium aims to expand silicon-on-insulator (SOI) innovation to broader markets by reducing the barriers to its adoption.
Companies need a proven and complete array of readily accessible SOI design platforms and IP to ensure transparent design platforms and cost-effective manufacturing. The SOI Consortium will bridge the gaps – both real and perceived – by reducing adoption costs, encouraging SOI best practices, and supplying design examples across the value chain.
The Consortium’s initial focus is on sharing best practices already established by early adopters and facilitating new design proof points demonstrating SOI’s performance, power, and area advantages.
