AMD, Infineon and UMC: the official technological partnership
Back in winter I joked that while AMD and Infineon are similar vendors and have their fabs close to each other, why shouldn´t they cooperate for an easier transition to new process technologies. About 1.5-2 months ago there was an announcement of triple technological partnership between AMD, Infineon and DuPont Photomasks, and then the idea of cooperation of two former companies with UMC became clear, as their Singapore partnership plans became known.
At last, this tangle of relationships was officially untwined and these three companies announced plans for uniting their engineering facilities for the joint development of 65/45 nm technological manufacturing platform for 300 mm wafer production.
Initially, all resources will be united at UMC fab in Hsinchu, Taiwan. Actually, Infineon will continue the current contract with UMC about 180/130 nm process technology development and join AMD and UMC in their work.
