Silicon-on-Insulator know-how: fabrics to VLSI, 3rd Edition, retraces the evolution of SOI fabrics, units and circuits over a interval of approximately 20 years. 20 years of development, examine and improvement within which SOI fabric fabrication strategies were born and deserted, units were invented and forgotten, yet, most significantly, two decades within which SOI expertise has bit by bit confirmed it could actually outperform bulk silicon in each real way. The flip of the century became out to be a milestone for the semiconductor undefined, as fine quality SOI wafers by surprise turned to be had in huge amounts. From then on, it took just a couple of years to witness using SOI expertise in a wealth of purposes starting from audio amplifiers and wristwatches to 64-bit microprocessors.
This booklet provides an entire and cutting-edge assessment of SOI fabrics, units and circuits. SOI fabrication and characterization strategies, SOI CMOS processing, and the physics of the SOI MOSFET obtain an in-depth analysis.
