The article reports that silicon-on-insulator (Sol) semiconductor technology has been implemented by ARM in partnership with Soitec SA to develop silicon-on-insulator (Sol) devices. According to ARM's CTO, Mike Muller, semiconductor processes have been transformed to ever-smaller geometries by Sol technology to provide improved performance to customers. A number of firms are adopting the technology but cost benefits of Sol process technology is being debated.
