The SOI (Silicon On Insulator) CMOS has many potential advantages over the traditional bulk CMOS circuit as it is free of latch-up and has improved performance and higher packing density [1, 2]. With the recent advances in high-quality thin-film SOI wafer technology, it is becoming a viable technology for ULSI. As SOI emerges as an alternate to bulk CMOS for low power and high-speed applications, an automated methodology will expedite the conversion of existing bulk CMOS designs to SOI CMOS.
