X-FAB Semiconductor Foundries AG has announced XT06

• X-FAB Semiconductor Foundries AG has announced XT06, its new 0.6 µm SOI CMOS technology with trench isolation, which reduces die size by up to 40% and makes SOI cost competitive with bulk CMOS technology. XT06 technology is targeted at power management, automotive, optical, industrial and other applications that can benefit from smaller die size, […]

SOI By Design

The widening availability of tools and services is good news for designers in the fabless/foundry arena considering the move to SOI. Leading foundries have made the investments in manufacturing on SOI. Those that have taken the final steps – finalizing electrical characterization, constructing SPICE models, integrating design tools and building libraries – are winning business. […]
