SOI Industry Consortium Announces a One-day Event in Silicon Valley Showcasing FD-SOI Products, Applications and Ecosystem

  Symposium on April 9 in San Jose to feature keynotes by industry leaders highlighting FD-SOI's proven ultra-low power and connectivity advantages across a wide range of strategic applications, including automotive, 5G, AI, edge and IoT

San Jose, CA, April 1, 2019- The SOI Industry Consortium, the leading industry organization representing the complete silicon-on-insulator (SOI)-based microelectronics value chain, is organizing a one-day symposium on April 9, 2019 in San Jose, California focused on FD-SOI applications and drivers across IoT, automotive, edge computing, AI, and 5G. This event will showcase new FD-SOI-based products and applications from fabless leaders, as well as exciting developments from the foundries, the EDA/IP/design ecosystem and supply chain partners.

The symposium, to be held at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel in San Jose, California, features a full day of keynotes and presentations. Several speakers will highlight the qualification and current production ramp of embedded MRAM and PCRAM. These are key milestones as they give the ecosystem the full flexibility for a wide breadth of applications in target markets.  Other presentations will be made by fabless companies that have successful products already on the market or currently ramping. A number of presentations will be made by companies in the design ecosystem, covering the investments they've made in IP and EDA tools. And finally, the leading foundry partners will present exciting new additions to their offerings. Two open forum panels will offer participants the chance to discuss with panelists from the fabless, foundry and EDA/IP community about "Product and Application Drivers" and "EDA, IP and Design Infrastructure."

"There is a new wave of fast-followers now evaluating FD-SOI technology options for next generation products," said Carlos Mazure, SOI Industry Consortium Chairman and Executive Director. "This symposium is an opportunity for the fabless and design communities to learn why and how FD-SOI is a strategic ingredient in game-changing products now ramping in high-growth markets.  We will show that all the necessary pieces and players are in place, making FD-SOI an easy reality."

Confirmed speakers in the program include:

  • Ron Martino, NXP, Vice President and General Manager
  • Tim Dry, Samsung Foundry, Director of Edge and Endpoints Marketing
  • Huibert Verhoeven, Synaptics, Senior Vice President and General Manager, IoT Division
