Kulim, Malaysia, — April 03, 2009 — SilTerra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., a leading wafer foundry provider, has officially debut the industry foundry compatible copper-based 110nm CMOS Logic Technology as the 10% optical shrink for it’s copper-based 130nm CMOS Logic Technology, which has been in mass production for more than 2 years. The technology, code name CL110G, applies 10% linear optical shrink on customer 130nm database. The electrical device specification and SPICE model of CL110G are optimized to match with the original 130nm design. The CL110G technology is developed with advanced processing tools to enhance yield performance.
“Customers could take advantage of the new CL110G platform to squeeze extra dies per wafer with uncompromised device performance. Customer will gain about 19% of extra die per wafer with reference to the pure digital 130nm CMOS Logic design. CL110G is now ready for customers’ prototypes and we are excited by the level of enthusiasm from our customers all over the world. In the current economy downturn, consumers are more cost conscious but their appetite for high performance and low power handheld gadgets remains high. Our customers are aggressively looking for solutions to serve this market better and they find this technology offers a timely solution for them to engage the new opportunity especially in emerging markets such as China and India“ said Yit Loong Lai, Vice President of Worldwide Sales & Marketing.
Silterra’s CL110G technology is optimized for high performance and high density complex design with demanding product performance. This technology features eight layers of dual damascene copper metallization, borderless contacts and vias with FSG inter-metal dielectric. The technology is supported by a complete set of foundry foundation Intellectual Property (IP) from Virage Logic, ARM and other silicon IP providers to help our customers shorten time-to-market and reduce development cost. The design flow is also validated in Synopsys and Mentor Graphic platforms.
