NEC Electronics will accept orders for 90-nm chips production

NEC Electronics announced that from March 2003 it will be accepting orders for integrated 90-nm chips, made using NEC UX6 technology.

New chips will base on NEC CB-90 platform. Currently the company prepares three IP libraries: CB-90H, CB-90M, and CB-90L, necessary for making low-power chips. According to the company, CB-90 will enable to reduce chip energy consumption by about 40% comparing 130-nm UX5 devices, based on CB-130 platform. New chips will operate at up to 1GHz clocks and will feature higher level of integration. CB-90 itself bases on using NEC Electronics´ new proprietary CMOS transistors with 1V supply voltage. New chips will supposedly be used in high-performance servers and game consoles.

An additional advantage of NEC Electronics´ 90-nm platform is that it has been developed to meet STARC (Semiconductor Technology Academic Research Center) and ASPLA (Advanced SoC Platform Corp.) industry standards, enabling easy implementation of either NEC Electronics or third party intellectual-property (IP) blocks.

Furthermore, NEC Electronics is planning to release a range of IP cores, including memory compilers, digital and analog PLLs, and AD/DA converters, as well as HSTL, SSTL, LVDS and USB I/Os. CB-90 performance verification libraries are scheduled for release in December 2002. NEC Electronics will begin accepting orders in March 2003. First samples of CB-90-based ASICs are scheduled for delivery in June 2003. Volume production will be launched in Q3 2003.
