Intel to produce 0.13μm flash memory in Irish Republic

Intel is going to correct the plans concerning Irish Republic fabs. Instead of the previously planned construction of a new 0.13Ům flash memory fab, the company is going to re-equip the existing facilities.

The fab usage is planned as follows: Fab 10 and Fab 14, located in Leixlip near Dublin, continue to produce various 0.18Ům and 0.25Ům logic devices — chipsets, SRAM, integrated processors, but the 0.13Ům equipment is to be installed along. According to company specialists, most production tools are used for 0.18Ům and 0.25Ům devices. The launch of 0.13Ům process technology requires special lithographic and other equipment, however flash memory manufacture process still requires aluminium metallisation, so it´ll be made with previous tools.

Now Intel representatives say nothing of the launch date of 0.13Ům process technology on Fab 10/14, just "fairly soon".

Speaking of the almost constructed Fab 24, its usage plans remain the same: the fab is to be launched in the very beginning of 2004 to make 300 mm silicon wafers with usage of 90 nm process technology.

Intel also plans to have 80% of its flash memory on 0.13Ům by the end of 2003. It´s currently made at D2, Santa Clara. Fab 22 in Arizona, being equipped for 0.13Ům flash memory, is currently making processors. Fab 11 in New Mexico and Fab 15 in Oregon will make 0.13Ům flash memories closer to the end of 2002.
