SOI Industry ConsortiumThe SOI Industry Consortium announced that it is bolstering its academic and research sectors with three new, prestigious universities: Stanford University, University of California, Berkeley and Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto, Japan have all joined the consortium as academic members. The Silicon-On-Insulator (SOI) Consortium is an international group aimed at accelerating broad adoption of SOI materials technology across semiconductor markets and is open to any company, organization or academic institution with an interest in SOI.

SOI Industry Consortium's membership now counts seven academic members and research institutes worldwide. The three new members are joining with prestigious academic members the Tyndall Institute, Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL), IMEC and Leti. The group's skills cover areas such as ultra-low power applications, MEMS, advanced CMOS, Fully Depleted (FD) SOI, FinFETS, photonics, analogue, SOC and RF applications.

"We are very pleased to welcome Stanford, U.C. Berkeley and Ritsumeikan University. With these additions, we are expanding our excellent ecosystem of prestigious academic and research support," remarks Horacio Mendez, Executive Director of the SOI Industry Consortium. "Together, we can facilitate cooperation with industry and other research organizations, helping to accelerate the use of SOI in both emerging and established application fields. Conversely, academia is our gateway to the future, providing our industry with researchers and engineers who have a strong grounding in the use and advantages of SOI."
