Soitec receives Sony's Best Partnership award

Soitec of Bernin, France, which makes silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafers, has received the Best Partnership Award from Sony Semiconductor. Soitec earned the recognition for outstanding support that has contributed to Sony's success in the radio-frequency (RF) semiconductor market, says the firm.

Soitec's RF-SOI products include high-resistivity silicon-on-insulator (HR-SOI) and Enhanced Signal Integrity (eSi) substrates, which are used for manufacturing switches for use in the latest generation of smart phones.

While Soitec's standard HR-SOI wafers are capable of meeting 2G and 3G wireless-communication requirements, its eSi substrates achieve much higher linearity and isolation.

"We are very honored to receive this award from Sony recognizing the long partnership between our companies. It demonstrates Soitec's commitment to deliver the enabling substrates that support Sony's RF devices business," said Bernard Aspar, senior VP & general manager of Soitec's Communication & Power business unit.
