Shanghai, China, August 8th – Xpeedic Technology announces today that it has joined the SOI Industry Consortium as a full member. The SOI Industry Consortium is formed by a group of leading companies from the electronics industry with the mission of accelerating silicon-on insulator (SOI) innovation into broad markets by promoting the benefits of SOI technology and reducing the barriers to adoption.
Demand for mobile communication and instant access to information has driven the growth of the portable devices at unprecedented speed. Designing multiband, multimode mobile devices to support today’s 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, and LTE-Advanced technologies poses a great challenge to RF designers. RF front end must move away from the traditional discrete analog component chains to a highly integrated one, which will not only provide reduced power consumption and improved radio performance, while keeping a smaller footprint, but will also make the system design more simplified and cost-effective.
“To enable highly integrated RF front end, Xpeedic has made a tremendous effort in developing a series of key technologies in the area of silicon-based integrated passive devices (IPD) and the related EDA tools, which will not only provide a secured performance but also make the design process more simplified with a faster time to market,” said Dr. Feng Ling, CEO of Xpeedic. “We are very honored to be part of the SOI Industry Consortium, and we will work closely with the other industry leaders to further promote SOI design and technology with the goal of benefiting more customers.”
“China is an important market, and the SOI ecosystem has put considerable efforts into enabling the extensive use of SOI design and technology by removing economic and technical barriers and accelerating innovation to further amplify the value to the Chinese end customer,” said Dr. Carlos Mazure, Executive Director the SOI Industry Consortium. “Xpeedic is a leading company in China with differentiating EDA and IP solutions in the field of RF and high speed digital designs to the SOI industry. We are very pleased to welcome Xpeedic into this group of leading companies supporting the SOI ecosystem.”
