CMOS FD-SOI Technology in the Eyes of a Circuit Designer

Wiesław Kuźmicz


FD-SOI CMOS (Fully Depleted Silion-on-Insulator CMOS) is a technology that attempts to overcome one of the barriers in downscaling of CMOS circuits beyond 28 nm, namely the static power consumption. FD-SOI competes with FinFET technology, and has many advantages. This talk presents FD-SOI technology as seen by a VLSI circuit designer, discussing in more detail a unique advantage of this technology, namely wide range of back bias voltages that allow to control the power consumption and performance by adjusting the threshold voltages. Other advantages for digital and analog design are also discussed, and illustrated by examples of practical designs.
