Fully Depleted Silicon On Insulator Book Review:

Fully Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator provides an in-depth presentation of the fundamental and pragmatic concepts of this increasingly important technology. There are two main technologies in the marketplace of advanced CMOS circuits: FinFETs and fully depleted silicon-on-insulators (FD-SOI). The latter is unchallenged in the field of low-power, high-frequency, and Internet-of-Things (IOT) circuits. The topic is very timely at research and development levels. Compared to existing books on SOI materials and devices, this book covers exhaustively the FD-SOI domain. Fully Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator is based on the expertise of one of the most eminent individuals in the community, Dr. Sorin Cristoloveanu, an IEEE Andrew Grove 2017 award recipient "For contributions to silicon-on-insulator technology and thin body devices." In the book, he shares key insights on the technological aspects, operation mechanisms, characterization techniques, and most promising emerging applications. Early praise for Fully Depleted Silicon-On-Insulator "It is an excellent written guide for everyone who would like to study SOI deeply, specially focusing on FD-SOI." --Dr. Katsu Izumi, Formerly at NTT Laboratories and then at Osaka Prefecture University, Japan "FDSOI technology is poised to catch an increasingly large portion of the semiconductor market. This book fits perfectly in this new paradigm [...] It covers many SOI topics which have never been described in a book before." --Professor Jean-Pierre Colinge, Formerly at TSMC and then at CEA-LETI, Grenoble, France "This book, written by one of the true experts and pioneers in the silicon-on-insulator field, is extremely timely because of the growing footprint of FD-SOI in modern silicon technology, especially in IoT applications. Written in a delightfully informal style yet comprehensive in its coverage, the book describes both the device physics underpinning FD-SOI technology and the cutting-edge, perhaps even futuristic devices enabled by it." --Professor Alexander Zaslavsky, Brown University, USA "A superbly written book on SOI technology by a master in the field." --Professor Yuan Taur, University of California, San Diego, USA "The author is a world-top researcher of SOI device/process technology. This book is his masterpiece and important for the FD-SOI archive. The reader will learn much from the book." --Professor Hiroshi Iwai, National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, Taiwan From the author "It is during our global war against the terrifying coalition of corona and insidious computer viruses that this book has been put together. Continuous enlightenment from FD-SOI helped me cross this black and gray period. I shared a lot of myself in this book. The rule of the game was to keep the text light despite the heavy technical content. There are even tentative FD-SOI hieroglyphs on the front cover, composed of curves discussed in the book." Written by a top expert in the silicon-on-insulator community and IEEE Andrew Grove 2017 award recipient Comprehensively addresses the technology aspects, operation mechanisms and electrical characterization techniques for FD-SOI devices Discusses FD-SOI’s most promising device structures for memory, sensing and emerging applications

Silicon on Insulator Technology Materials to VLSI Book Review:

Silicon-on-Insulator Technology: Materials to VLSI, Third Edition, retraces the evolution of SOI materials, devices and circuits over a period of roughly twenty years. Twenty years of progress, research and development during which SOI material fabrication techniques have been born and abandoned, devices have been invented and forgotten, but, most importantly, twenty years during which SOI Technology has little by little proven it could outperform bulk silicon in every possible way. The turn of the century turned out to be a milestone for the semiconductor industry, as high-quality SOI wafers suddenly became available in large quantities. From then on, it took only a few years to witness the use of SOI technology in a wealth of applications ranging from audio amplifiers and wristwatches to 64-bit microprocessors. This book presents a complete and state-of-the-art review of SOI materials, devices and circuits. SOI fabrication and characterization techniques, SOI CMOS processing, and the physics of the SOI MOSFET receive an in-depth analysis. Silicon-on-Insulator Technology: Materials to VLSI, Third Edition, also describes the properties of other SOI devices, such as multiple gate MOSFETs, dynamic threshold devices and power MOSFETs. The advantages and performance of SOI circuits used in both niche and mainstream applications are discussed in detail. The SOI specialist will find this book invaluable as a source of compiled references covering the different aspects of SOI technology. For the non-specialist, the book serves an excellent introduction to the topic with detailed, yet simple and clear explanations. Silicon-on-Insulator Technology: Materials to VLSI, Third Edition is recommended for use as a textbook for classes on semiconductor device processing and physics at the graduate level.

CMOS VLSI Engineering Book Review:

Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) CMOS technology has been regarded as another major technology for VLSI in addition to bulk CMOS technology. Owing to the buried oxide structure, SOI technology offers superior CMOS devices with higher speed, high density, and reduced second order effects for deep-submicron low-voltage, low-power VLSI circuits applications. In addition to VLSI applications, and because of its outstanding properties, SOI technology has been used to realize communication circuits, microwave devices, BICMOS devices, and even fiber optics applications. CMOS VLSI Engineering: Silicon-On-Insulator addresses three key factors in engineering SOI CMOS VLSI - processing technology, device modelling, and circuit designs are all covered with their mutual interactions. Starting from the SOI CMOS processing technology and the SOI CMOS digital and analog circuits, behaviors of the SOI CMOS devices are presented, followed by a CAD program, ST-SPICE, which incorporates models for deep-submicron fully-depleted mesa-isolated SOI CMOS devices and special purpose SOI devices including polysilicon TFTs. CMOS VLSI Engineering: Silicon-On-Insulator is written for undergraduate senior students and first-year graduate students interested in CMOS VLSI. It will also be suitable for electrical engineering professionals interested in microelectronics.

Radiation Imaging Detectors Using SOI Technology Book Review:

Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology is widely used in high-performance and low-power semiconductor devices. The SOI wafers have two layers of active silicon (Si), and normally the bottom Si layer is a mere physical structure. The idea of making intelligent pixel detectors by using the bottom Si layer as sensors for X-ray, infrared light, high-energy particles, neutrons, etc. emerged from very early days of the SOI technology. However, there have been several difficult issues with fabricating such detectors and they have not become very popular until recently. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the basic concepts and research issues of SOI radiation image detectors. It introduces basic issues to implement the SOI detector and presents how to solve these issues. It also reveals fundamental techniques, improvement of radiation tolerance, applications, and examples of the detectors. Since the SOI detector has both a thick sensing region and CMOS transistors in a monolithic die, many ideas have emerged to utilize this technology. This book is a good introduction for people who want to develop or use SOI detectors.

Electrical Characterization of Silicon on Insulator Materials and Devices Book Review:

Silicon on Insulator is more than a technology, more than a job, and more than a venture in microelectronics; it is something different and refreshing in device physics. This book recalls the activity and enthu siasm of our SOl groups. Many contributing students have since then disappeared from the SOl horizon. Some of them believed that SOl was the great love of their scientific lives; others just considered SOl as a fantastic LEGO game for adults. We thank them all for kindly letting us imagine that we were guiding them. This book was very necessary to many people. SOl engineers will certainly be happy: indeed, if the performance of their SOl components is not always outstanding, they can now safely incriminate the relations given in the book rather than their process. Martine, Gunter, and Y. S. Chang can contemplate at last the amount of work they did with the figures. Our SOl accomplices already know how much we borrowed from their expertise and would find it indecent to have their detailed contri butions listed. Jean-Pierre and Dimitris incited the book, while sharing their experience in the reliability of floating bodies. Our families and friends now realize the SOl capability of dielectrically isolating us for about two years in a BOX. Our kids encouraged us to start writing. Our wives definitely gave us the courage to stop writing. They had a hard time fighting the symptoms of a rapidly developing SOl allergy.

MOS Devices for Low Voltage and Low Energy Applications Book Review:

Helps readers understand the physics behind MOS devices for low-voltage and low-energy applications • Based on timely published and unpublished work written by expert authors • Discusses various promising MOS devices applicable to low-energy environmental and biomedical uses • Describes the physical effects (quantum, tunneling) of MOS devices • Demonstrates the performance of devices, helping readers to choose right devices applicable to an industrial or consumer environment • Addresses some Ge-based devices and other compound-material-based devices for high-frequency applications and future development of high performance devices. 'Seemingly innocuous everyday devices such as smartphones, tablets and services such as on-line gaming or internet keyword searches consume vast amounts of energy. Even when in standby mode, all these devices consume energy. The upcoming “Internet of Things” (IoT) is expected to deploy 60 billion electronic devices spread out in our homes, cars and cities. Britain is already consuming up to 16 per cent of all its power through internet use and this rate is doubling every four years. According to The UK’s Daily Mail May (2015), if usage rates continue, all of Britain's power supply could be consumed by internet use in just 20 years. In 2013, U.S. data centers consumed an estimated 91 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity, corresponding to the power generated by seventeen 1000-megawatt nuclear power plants. Data center electricity consumption is projected to increase to roughly 140 billion kilowatt-hours annually by 2020, the equivalent annual output of 50 nuclear power plants. (Natural Resources Defense Council, USA, Feb. 2015) All these examples stress the urgent need for developing electronic devices that consume as little energy as possible. The book “MOS Devices for Low-Voltage and Low-Energy Applications” explores the different transistor options that can be utilized to achieve that goal. It describes in detail the physics and performance of transistors that can be operated at low voltage and consume little power, such as subthreshold operation in bulk transistors, fully depleted SOI devices, tunnel FETs, multigate and gate-all-around MOSFETs. Examples of low-energy circuits making use of these devices are given as well. The book “MOS Devices for Low-Voltage and Low-Energy Applications” is a good reference for graduate students, researchers, semiconductor and electrical engineers who will design the electronic systems of tomorrow.' --- Dr. Jean-Pierre Colinge, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) “The authors present a creative way to show how different MOS devices can be used for low-voltage and low-power applications. They start with Bulk MOSFET, following with SOI MOSFET, FinFET, gate-all-around MOSFET, Tunnel-FET and others. It is presented the physics behind the devices, models, simulations, experimental results and applications. This book is interesting for researchers, graduate and undergraduate students. The low-energy field is an important topic for integrated circuits in the future and none can stay out of this.” --- Prof. Joao A. Martino, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil
