Chipworks cites SOI in major IBM innovations (EETimes)


Citing SOI in the Power family of high-performance processors, Chipworks concludes that IBM is a major source of chip innovation. In a recent EETimes article (read it here), which charts IBM developments at the transistor level over the last decade, the article notes that “..the 32 nm technology used to fabricate the IBM Power7+ represents an extraordinary technical achievement. IBM continues to be one of the technology leaders in the global semiconductor industry.”  The article has excellent charts and pictures, and is a recommended read for anyone interested in the evolution of leading-edge SOI-based processors over the last decade.
