Silicon-on-Insulators (SOI) are made up of a thin silicon uppermost layer and a thicker silicon lowermost layer with an insulating material like silicon dioxide forming the middle layer between these silicon layers. SOI are valued for their high performance characteristics, low energy wastage, low power usage, and higher speeds as opposed to regular silicon wafers. With such properties, SOI are in much demand for their use in mobile phones, notebooks, digitalized cameras, and in other such electronic devices. Initially, the American military had used SOI in the 1960s before it was commercialized in the 1980s. Asia-Pacific and North America are expected to lead the market in global consumption, generating the largest revenues. The major industry segments where SOI is used are microprocessors for computer motherboards and in video game consoles.
