While it is innovative and new, it is quite expensive. The more popular and used it will be, the more pocket friendly it will be. I think for sale they will be available only somewhere in late 2015. William - http://www.carid.com/

IBM is again way ahead. But pocket cellphones, commercially? How are you going to hold these phones. Need Blue Tooth at all times. Then what happens if you need to check or take pictures. Oh of course, they will sell you a flat board to use on it. Medical usage, yes. Some audio, video units, environmental temp detections etc, yes.

Look for an old sci-fi show called "Earth: Final Conflict" where video mobile phones were cylinders with pull-out flexible screens. Cool!

Thanks for sharing us this fantastic post, I highly recommend that this should be read by others too.. I really appreciate this low-cost technique for manufacturing silicon-based electronics, as it looks to be very innovative and more pocket friendly. John Marry- http://www.wheelfire.com/

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
