The next generation of ST’s most advanced microcontrollers (currently on 40nm bulk) will be on 28nm FD-SOI, he said. Monti also gave examples of other FD-SOI automotive chips ST is doing for partners, including chips for WiFi, satellite radio, telematics, entertainment and ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems). “FD-SOI is not just a manufacturing node for us. It’s a whole cluster of technologies for all things in the car,” Monti told Clarke.
