A logic family, described by J. Lohstroh in an article entitled "ISL, Fast and Dense Low-Power Logic," IEEE Journal of S.S.C. SC-14, 585-590 (June 1979), makes use of the lateral and vertical "parasitic" PNP between the isolation and the NPN as a fundamental mechanism to obtain fast switching speeds.
