@Junko, Not a chip designer - but 10ua leakage doesn't seem very low for IOT , but that's probably a very good number for LTE. But the number for a competing IOT long range wireless (LORA) that's now in deployment phases, are in the area of 200na leakage as far as i can remember. 

BTW , as for the FD-SOI process itself, with those kind of numbers, they could prrobably build one mean IOT microcontroller with it, once they have 28nm FD-SOI nvram.And  ST is working on OxRam/ReRam 28nm FD-SOI mcu, as are others.

Synapse Design CEO talked about the need for the IoT modem ASIC to have "extreme low leakage when in standby mode." IoT SoC designers out there, how are you dealing with that today? Curious minds want to know.
