Soitec is claiming the industry's first germanium-free, strained silicon-on-insulator (SOI) solution for partially-depleted (PD) CMOS IC architectures. The new PD-sSOI has a thick 40nm strained silicon layer that exhibits excellent thickness and strain uniformity across the entire wafer. Testing also verifies that this high-level strain can be maintained throughout the subsequent high-temperature processes used in the semiconductor manufacturing cycle.
