3D sequential integration enables the full use of the third dimension thanks to its high alignment performance. In this paper, we address the major challenges of 3D sequential integration: in particular, the control of molecular bonding allows us to obtain pristine quality top active layer. With the help of Solid Phase Epitaxy, we can match the performance(More)
After a short reminder of the principle of monolithic 3D integration, this paper firstly reviews the main technological challenges associated to this integration and proposes solutions to assess them. Wafer bonding is used to have perfect crystalline quality of the top layer at the wafer scale. Thermally stabilized silicide is developed to use standard(More)
– Unique features of the 28nm ultra-thin body and buried oxide (UTBB) FDSOI technology enable the operation of SRAM in a wide voltage range. Minimum operating voltage limitations of a high-density (HD) 6-transistor (6T) SRAM can be overcome by using a single p-well (SPW) bitcell design in FDSOI. Transient simulations of dynamic failure metrics suggest that(More)
Microbiology is important to industry therefore rapid and statistically representative measurements of cell physiological state, proliferation, and viability are essential if informed decisions about fermentation bioprocess optimization or control are to be made, because process performance will depend largely on the number of metabolically active viable(More)
Detailed monitoring of training sessions of elite athletes is an important component of their training. In this paper we describe an application that performs a precise segmentation and labeling of swimming sessions. This allows a comprehensive breakdown of the training session, including lap times, detailed statistics of strokes, and turns. To this end we(More)
Planar fully-depleted SOI technology with ultra-thin body and buried oxide presents a platform for an energy-efficient design in deeply scaled technologies without major changes in the bulk-CMOS design infrastructure. Good control of short-channel effects with thin transistor body offers a possibility to reduce the supply voltage. Thin buried oxide provides(More)
PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES The complex planning and quality assurance required for spine SBRT are a barrier to implementation in time-sensitive or limited resource clinical situations. We developed and validated an automated inverse planning algorithm designed to streamline planning and allow rapid delivery of conformal single fraction spine SBRT using widely(More)
