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
TCAD specialist GSS says nanowire transistors look practical down to 5nm but that designers need to carefully explore how the wires are shaped as quantum-confinement effects take hold
CEA-Leti has launched a design center called Silicon Impulse with the intention of lowering the entry barrier to using the FD-SOI process.
The FD-SOI technology developed by CEA-Leti and STMicroelectronics is beginning to gain ground as chipmakers investigate the process as a way to deliver low-energy, wireless-capable SoCs.
