Advanced 65nm CMOS Chip Works First Time
Infineon Technologies announced today that the first cell phone chips equipped with its advanced 65-nm CMOS process technology are now available. The dial-in to different GSM mobile communications networks and the resulting connections worked without a hitch. This new technology features higher performance at lower power consumption and is the most advanced semiconductor technology for logic circuitry that Infineon is currently preparing for mass production. First products in this new technology are expected to be market-ready towards the end of 2006.
The chip just tested puts more than 30 million transistors on a space of just 33mm² and proves that Infineon is able to produce such major digital and analog circuitry in cell phones as MCU/DSP cores, storage and analog/mixed-signal in 65-nm technology to operate with high reliability. This space-saving technology was also used to manufacture high-frequency circuits for the first time.
Infineon developed this technology in the 65/45-nm research and development alliance ICIS consisting of IBM, Chartered, Infineon and Samsung. The mobile communications chip developed by Infineon was produced in the frame of a manufacturing agreement with Chartered in Singapore.
