Without abandoning the use of FinFET in steps 28 and 14 nm, HLMC company sees as a more economical alternative to the possibility of the development of FD-SOI at the factory, designed for 300mm wafer.
As a more affordable cost, this technology can bring the Chinese chip developer for the IoT, does not have a private capacity. The main contract manufacturer offering FD-SOI, is Globalfoundries.

Last year the company introduced Globalfoundries 12-nanometer technology platform, the SOI the FD , as it became known last week that Globalfoundries is expanding, investing in production, located in the four countries . In particular, China's Globalfoundries company is planning to build a factory, designed for 300mm wafer, which 22FDX process technology to be used. The output of the company should start in 2018.
