• Availability of design kits for the new CMOS 7RF SOI technology, which enables singlechip RF solutions for mobile devices, is planned for the first half of 2008.

• Introduced to the design community at DAC this past summer, the new Cu-45 ASIC brings SOI technology into communications, consumer and other major commercial market segments.

• Billed as “the fastest microprocessor ever built”, the new POWER6™ is built on 65nm SOI. A 64 bit, dual-core processor with 790 million transistors running at up to 4.7GHz, it doubles the speed of the previous generation POWER5™ while using nearly the same amount of electricity to run and cool it.
