Due to the uniform structure, isolation is robust across the structure and not confined to certain areas. Additionally, deep trench implantation is not required to form the structure, eliminating cost. The semiconductor-on-insulator substrate may include an active silicon layer over an oxide layer. The oxide layer may be over a charge trap layer. The charge trap layer may be over a silicon substrate.
