The FD-SOI design and manufacturing ecosystem has just gotten a €360M boost. A new 3-year public-private project involving 500 engineers from 19 members in seven countries is looking to enable volume manufacturing in Europe from 28nm down to 10nm. The Places2Be project (which stands for Pilot Lines for Advanced CMOS Enhanced by SOI in 2x nodes, Built in Europe) is lead by ST, with production lines in Dresden and Grenoble. Among the other companies and institutions involved are GlobalFoundries, Soitec, Mentor, Leti, imec, Ericsson and UCL.
