Applied Materials Inc. has joined the SOI Industry Consortium as a full member. The consortium, formed in October 2007 by 19 companies from across the electronics industry, is aimed at accelerating silicon-on-insulator (SOI) innovation into broad markets by promoting the benefits of the technology and reducing the barriers to adoption.

Applied Materials brings the consortium membership to 20 companies covering a spectrum of users, enablers, suppliers and manufacturers. Other members include AMD, ARM, Cadence Design Systems, CEA-Leti, Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing, Freescale Semiconductor, IBM, Innovative Silicon, KLA-Tencor, Lam Research, NXP Semiconductors, Samsung Electronics, Semico, Soitec, SEH Europe, STMicroelectronics, Synopsys, TSMC and UMC.

"In addition to the performance advantages of SOI as a semiconductor substrate technology, SOI promises better energy efficiency," said Andre-Jacques Auberton-Herve, chairman of the board of the SOI Industry Consortium. "Applied Materials' entry into the SOI Consortium supports the momentum we are gaining across the entire spectrum of the semiconductor market," he added.

The SOI Industry Consortium is open to any company, organization or academic institution with an interest in SOI.
