The fully depleted silicon-on-insulator process offered by STMicroelectronics has been praised by Simon Segars, the new CEO of ARM Holdings. "We have been looking at FD-SOI; it's a very neat solution to providing more performance and lower power in a planar transistor," he says. "I've seen some of the results ST have achieved and they're really impressive, and I've seen chips running on the bench and, from the performance and power perspective; it's very impressive."
