As one of the world's only foundries capable of 28nm gate- last HKMG production, UMC is well-positioned to capitalize on our 28nm experience to bring 28HPCU into high volume manufacturing, said S.C.
Time-dependent, dielectric breakdown in transistors, including those based on HKMG and FinFET technology, responds to the electric field across the gate oxide with the creation of charge traps that permit current to tunnel through the insulator.
"By combining expertise and providing early access to each other's technology, our multi-year collaboration with Synopsys has helped accelerate the development of our advanced 28-nanometer HKMG technology," said Kevin Meyer, vice president of design enablement, strategy and alliances at GLOBALFOUNDRIES, on behalf of the Common Platform alliance.
A spokesman from GlobalFoundries said: "This is an important milestone for Globalfoundires because it is the industry's first demonstration of a foundry product with HKMG technology.
" The AMS flow is designed to emphasize the advanced features of GLOBALFOUNDRIES' 28nm Gate First High-k Metal Gate (HKMG) technology.
Information technology company IBM (NYSE:IBM), semiconductor foundries Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Ltd (Nasdaq:CHRT) (SGX-ST:CHARTERED) and GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Infineon Technologies AG (NYSE:IFX)(FSE:IFX), a provider of semiconductor and system solutions, electronics company Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and STMicroelectronics (NYSE:STM), a provider of semiconductor solutions , have defined and are jointly developing a 28nm, high-k metal gate (HKMG), low-power bulk complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) process technology.
Even as the industry moves into the era of the high-k metal gate (HKMG) and FinFET transistor to meet this demand, chipmakers continue to seek ways to improve device performance without increasing power consumption.
The chip was designed using the 32nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) process and is expected to deliver twice the performance of the Cortex A9 dual-core and consume 30 percent less power than the 45nm-based Exynos 4.
including the latest High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) transistor technology; and will
Beyond the hardware specs, Chipworks' reverse engineering also confirms that the A6 is produced using Samsung's 32nm HKMG process, and that the total die size is 9.7mm by 9.97mm (96mm2).
Future plans include UMC's 28nm High-K metal gate (HKMG) and Poly/SiOn processes, based upon customer demand.
