Advanced 200mm and 300mm RF SOI and BiCMOS Technologies Targeting 5G and Beyond (6G) RF Front-End Module SOC

While 5G wireless networks are currently deployed around the world, preliminary research activities have begun to look beyond 5G and conceptualize 6G standard. Although it is envisioned that 6G may bring an unprecedent transformation of the wireless networks in comparison with previous generations, the necessity to develop analog and RF specialized technologies to address new frequency spectra will remain. In this paper, we will review the development of partially depleted 200mm and 300mm RF SOI technologies and BiCMOS technologies developed at STMicroelectronics to address 5G front-end and new requirements implied by 6G enablement.
