During the last decade, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) technology has demonstrated its high frequency potential, reaching cut-off frequencies close to 500 GHz, and its suitability for commercial applications in harsh environments. For high-speed and radio frequency (RF) applications, strained Si and high-resistivity Si can be considered, respectively, to enhance carrier mobility and thus current and operation speed, and to minimize the RF substrate losses. ...
