Term (Index) Definition
DST, Depleted Substrate Transistor  Depleted Substrate Transistor represents a new generation of MOSFETs built into the SOI substrate in such way that its active Si layer between source and drain is fully depleted creating high conductivity channel; elimination of junction capacitances results in the device featuring superior characteristics.
fully depleted SOI, FD SOI  possible in SOI substrates with ultra-thin active silicon layer; under typical gate voltage in CMOS depletion/inversion region in silicon under the gate expands all the way to the insulator. See "SOI Wafers"
