IoT may start with the device designers not needing the most advanced nodes or technologies, resulting in the use of stable nodes such as 90nm or 65nm. However, we all know how the consumer will want increasing function/integration and speed. 

Another more immediate reason why IoT would use 3DIC is the heterogeneous nature of IoT...designers would want to cheaply and at low power and form factor combine analog, digital, RF and sensors.....easily and effectively done via monolithic 3DIC.

IoT devices may end up having short time to market given a large number of participants. Also considering the consumers, low cost maybe a requirement. We tend to spend heavy o. Tablets, smart watches etc however thinking globally the purchasing power becomes an issue in some of the large markets. Given these devices may not need to have a large number of functions and features and they most likely are targeted applications, the tricky part will be the SW most likely. The device designers may not need the most advanced nodes or technologies, resulting in the use of stable nodes such as 90nm or 65nm at most.

Ultra Low Power

There will also be a "hot topics" session dedicated to Ultra-Low Power at the S3S Conference in October.

It will cover a broad range of topics going from device technology to dedicated IC design and the huge challenge of full-time connectivity.

And if IoT is your field of interest, it is also among the topics of the short course on SOI applications.

You can check the ULP session details at: http://s3sconference.org/hot-topics/

the Short Course program at: http://s3sconference.org/short-courses/

and the overall conference program at: http://s3sconference.org/program/

Thanks for posting this Zvi.

 

I am particularly looking forward to hearing the Plenary Talk from Gary Patton, the new CTO at GF. He will present his vision for IoT and FDSOI.

 

See you in Sonoma in October!
