Building Blocks for RF transceivers in 28nm FDSOI CMOS

The general goal of this project is the industrialization of 28/20nm Fully Depleted (FD) Silicon On Insulator (SOI) Technology platforms, enabling 2 different sources in 2 different European countries. The project also aims at establishing and reinforcing a design ecosystem in Europe using these platforms. Last, the project considers extremely important to explore extension towards FD devices at 14/10nm, in order to continue the road toward more efficient technologies. Therefore the name of the project is PLACES2BE: Pilot Lines for Advanced CMOS Enhanced by SOI in 2x nodes, Built in Europe

One of the objectives is to contribute to the industrialization of 2x nm FDSOI CMOS technology by helping to establish and grow the European design ecosystem around FDSOI. The University of Twente will concentrate on building blocks for RF transceivers and innovative circuit architectures that will exploit the unique properties of FDSOI. This way, radio modems can become more digital and also more robust to interferers.
