So, as far as their "recipe" is concerned, what insulator are they using? Silicon dioxide?

I'm surprised you didn't mention silicon on sapphire as a competitive process for RF chips. Peregrine Semiconductor has had some impressive success with that. How does the IBM SOI process compare to SOS?

Glad to hear more about IBM's process technologies. They do some great work and often seem to be more of a "behind the scenes" effort. Hope the future is bright for them.

IBM is able to make switches for 60 GHz and above on 300mm wafer, that will be a great benefit to the wireless and wired areas.  It will lead all other companies in the field and in the world.  It is hope that this may save IBM from selling this unit.

Sapphire is very nichy...developed 30 years ago...and only Peregrine is using it...not sure what is special about but clearly it lacks any broad of appeal

IBM has been using SiGe process for several years now...and 60 Gzh switches were announced way back too...so the technology has been developed long time ago, this is just announcement of trying to milk more dollars before teh technology becomes absolete...I doubt IBM will be investing more R&D into this

I think IBM future is more in nano, artificial inteligence (Watson) and system integration and services...I doubt they will working on semiconductor processes anymore

I'm pretty sure Peregrine is the only one using it because they've got a patent on it. Maybe we can get someone from the company to weigh in here.

Thanks. So nothing earth shattering there.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
