The commercial potential of SOLES (Silicon on Lattice-Engineered Substrate) is investigated considering the competing technologies, competing market players and market demands. Monolithic integration of Si devices with III-V electronic devices using SOLES could be used to produce single chip wireless IC, catering the need of the most prosperous consumer markets, the mobile phone market and the WLAN/WMAN/WWAN wireless connectivity market. A cost model has been developed to justify the cost effectiveness of single chip wireless IC. The commercial viability of SOLES is commented based on these analyses.
