SiTime, which leverages SOI for high-performance MEMS timing solutions, has introduced TempFlat™ MEMS

SiTime, which leverages SOI for high-performance MEMS timing solutions, has introduced TempFlat™ MEMS. Until recently, all MEMS oscillators used compensation circuitry to stabilize the output frequency over temperature. SiTime’s TempFlat MEMS is a revolutionary breakthrough that eliminates temperature compensation, resulting in dramatically higher performance, smaller size, lower power and cost, says the company. According to […]

Toshiba’s Cell Regza TV

It’s on SOI. Here’s Why. Toshiba’s new Cell Regza TV is poised to redefine both high-definition (HD) TV and TV-Internet convergence. At the heart of this strategy is the SOI-based Cell processor. It was almost a decade ago when Toshiba first teamed with IBM and Sony to create the Cell. The SOI-based solution enabled the […]

ARM Moves Into SOI

ARM Holdings, the industry’s leading provider of semiconductor IP for processors, peripherals and SoC solutions, is strengthening its physical IP portfolio by adding SOI technology. Buys Soisic: “SOI technology is a leading candidate to address the power and performance scaling issues associated with traditional bulk CMOS processes as they migrate to ever-smaller geometries. The acquisition […]
