FD-SOI: An Optimal Technology for Integrated IoT and 5G Designs

Thursday, December 13, 2018 at 1 p.m. Eastern

As digital-centric scaling pursues solutions in 3D device architectures such as gate-all-around (GAA) transistors, most applications in new leading-edge growth markets such as Edge AI/ML, IoT, automotive and 5G mmWave demand post-bulk processing power and also next-generation analog and RF performance. This webinar is an overview of production-proven fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI), the only post-bulk planar transistor technology. We will explain and demonstrate how FD-SOI delivers FinFET-like performance, excellent mismatch and noise characteristics and best-in-class Ft and Fmax required for energy-efficient mmWave applications.

Maximize uptime and optimize maintenance with AMS

Yukinobu Hayashi, Senior Field Applications Engineer from CyberOptics, explains the application uses of the WaferSense® Auto Multi Sensor™ (AMS) for Leveling, Vibration, and Relative Humidity (RH) that facilitates maximizing uptime and optimizes maintenance. The combination of these attributes in a thin wafer shaped all-in-one wireless sensor, provides engineers the ability to acquire highly repeatable measurements of tilt, vibration, and humidity while under a vacuum and without venting a chamber. The quantitative numeric results give engineers an objective basis for comparisons, and analysis that can be reproducible across multiple users over extended periods of time. June 13, 2018
