TSMC Enhances 0.13μm Family

Hsinchu, Taiwan, R.O.C. – July 01 , 2009 - Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Ltd. (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM) today announced that it has released an enhanced version of its 0.13μm process to benefit customers’ cost and competition and to enable the integration of power management functions. The 0.13μm/0.11μm family now includes a slim standard cell, SRAM and I/O with substantial area reduction and the 0.13um process also adopts LD-MOS (5V~20V) on RF platforms to enable analog and power management applications. The slim platform is available in the third quarter this year while the LD-MOS on RF platforms will be available in Q4 this year.                 
                
To meet the ever shrinking requirements for basic consumer and RF applications, the slim platform I/O area achieves a 30% reduction and SRAM bit cells demonstrate a 25% reduction when compared with traditional offerings. Furthermore, a 0.13μm LD-MOS device built upon a RF platform enables SOC designs with power management functionality.                
                
“This is another example of how TSMC is committed to enabling more efficient SoC design of wireless, consumer and communications devices using 0.13μm process technology,” said Dr. Simon Wang, senior director of Advanced Technology Business Division. “The result of these enhancements will spawn the next generation of innovation,” he said.                
                
TSMC’s investment in R&D for technology and IP portfolios within the 0.13μm /0.11μm family now delivers a true 5V with Copper interconnect for the integration of analog, high-speed DSP, power management and watt-scale class-D amplification. Along with new features development for system-on-chip design, TSMC also offers a shrunken path to enhance customer’s competitiveness including sub-node and slim technology platform.
