GlobalFoundries has decided to put development of its 7nm process on the backburner and focus on its existing finFET and FD-SOI processes.
FD-SOI is gradually building up a presence as a technology not just for low-power but RF and power integration.
Research institute Leti and Soitec have decided to team up to work on a new generation of engineered substrates, such as specialized SOI wafers.
GlobalFoundries intends to offer a 12nm FinFET process as a stepping stone from its 14nm process.
Sonics has developed a version of its power-management IP core for SoCs that adds support for dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, along with the ability to tune settings according to temperature.
Racyics has kicked off a hosted-design service to make it easier for startups and researchers to access the 22nm FD-SOI process offered by GlobalFoundries.
GlobalFoundries has introduced an embedded-MRAM option for its 22nm FD-SOI process: the 22FDX platform.
But project lead Chenming Hu, 'finFET's father', has also highlighted important changes in the funding landscape for university research.
GlobalFoundries has developed variants of the 28nm FD-SOI process that offer smaller die sizes and lower-power operation.
Silicon Impulse program adds partners to ease industrialisation of ultra-low power IC designs based on FD-SOI processes
