@iniewski: Are you independent of them? If so what do you or anyone else who looking through these sldies, think of their technology and chances?

Rick, yes, I am totally independent of Su Volta...they make very impressive claims, but we all know how tough it is to come up with something really innovative after 50+ years of silicon developments...I have not analyzed the claims, would be happy to, my PhD was in MOSFET modeling afterall, but someone would have to pay me for that service ;-)...alternatively we can ask Ashok Kapoor (author of the talk in Whistler) to comment...Kris

OK, go for it. SuVolta is essentially claiming a third alternative to SOI and FINFets. That's big. Love to hear others weigh in on the viability of that claim.

Kris, the slides Ashok presented at the conference you mentioned are on JFET stuff. Since then, SuVolta abandoned that approach. The news released today is on bulk CMOS based PowerShrink technology. Please visit the company website to learn more about this groundbreaking technology...Sang-Soo

thank you Sang-Soo, if you ever want to present at CMOSET a new approach let me know, kris.iniewski@gmail.com

@iniewski: BTW, a sentence or two of your views here may encourage others to come to you for more in-depth consulting and analysis. Please invite Ashok to chime in...and a question, what kind of process was the JFET based on originally?

Readers may be interested to know we profiled SuVolta in an early edition of EE Times Confidential, which referenced the JFET technology and the CMOSET slides.

Does a new, potentially disruptive technology always have to be supported by a startup to get industry attention? Doesn't it just mean a good or lucky sales job to a VC?

Fujitsu collaboration with SuVolta on this development making the technology available at 65nm process node is an assured step in the commercialization of the technology. And the company's executive slate has impressive players. So overall, I would give the technology a chance to prove itself but I would caution inflated claims to "halfing" power of ICs. What is achievable at the device level may not necessarily translate linearly at the integrated circuit level for acceptable volume production yields.
