This book first introduces SOI device physics and its fundamental idiosyncrasies. It then walks the reader through realizations of these mechanisms, which are observed in common high-speed microprocessor designs. The book also offers rules of thumb and comparisons to conventional bulk CMOS to guide implementation and describes a number of unique circuit topologies that SOI supports.

From the Jacket

Market demand for microprocessor performance has motivated continued scaling of CMOS through a succession of lithography generations. Quantum mechanical limitations to continued scaling are becoming readily apparent. Partially Depleted Silicon-on-Insulator (PD-SOI) technology is emerging as a promising means of addressing these limitat...
