Abstract

SOI Technology has received much attention since the announcement of an SOI line of microprocessor products by IBM in 1998. Semiconductor manufacturers such as Motorola have followed IBM’s lead and have announced SOI products [1], while other major US semiconductor vendors such as AMD are currently developing SOI products. Most of these companies develop SOI products for low-power, low-voltage applications, however, a small number of vendors have specialized in the field of harsh-environment electronics, which will be the topic of this paper.
