Top Silicon Valley Companies Signed Up for FD-SOI & RF-SOI Forum (27 Feb. 2015 in SF, free, registration still open)


Name a top Silicon Valley company, and you’ll probably find it on the attendance list of the upcoming FD-SOI & RF-SOI Forum in San Francisco. At the time of this posting, people from over 65 companies are among the hundreds who’ve signed up for this free, all-day event.

FDSOI_SF15_workshopIf you haven’t yet, you can still sign up at the SOI Consortium Website – just click here to go there. This event’s being sponsored by ARM, GlobalFoundries, ST, Synopsys, SunEdison, SEH and Soitec. Cadence, Ciena, GlobalFoundries, IBM, IMEC, Samsung, STMicroelectronics, Synopsys and VeriSilicon will present compelling solutions about FD-SOI and RF-SOI technologies, including competitive comparisons and product results.

Here’s a preview of the day. The morning’s devoted to FD-SOI, and the afternoon’s all about RF-SOI. Plus, there’s a (yes, free!) lunch, and a chance to network during the coffee breaks and over wine & cheese at the end of the day.

If you’re in San Francisco for ISSCC (22-26 February), the FD-SOI/RF-SOI is a seven-minute walk up the street the next day. But if you can’t get to SF, don’t worry – you’ll get summaries of all the talks here at ASN. Access to the complete presentations will be freely available on the SOI Consortium website a few days later.

This workshop is part of a continuing series organized by the SOI Consortium. If you missed the recent ASN coverage of the event in Shanghai this fall, you can read about the FD-SOI part here, and the RF-SOI part here. For coverage of the Tokyo event in December, click here to read about the big Sony FD-SOI presentation and EDA/IP presentations and more here, and the Samsung, ST and other presentations here. You can also download most any of the presentations from all of the workshops that have been held over the last five years here.
