Austrian foundry ups multiproject runs for high voltage
Austriamicrosystems is increasing the number of multiproject wafer runs it performs, focusing on the recently introduced high-voltage 0.18µm process.
The company now offers four prototyping runs for the H18 technology which is based on IBM's 0.18µm CMOS process CMOS7RF and is intended for smart power management ICs in handsets, PDAs, portable media players and other mobile devices. In addition, four MPW runs for foundry customers are available in the CMOS7RF base technology.
Overall, Austriamicrosystems said it will offer more than 150 MPW start dates in 2010, working with design-support organisations such as CMP-TIMA, Europractice, Fraunhofer IIS and Mosis.
All process technologies are supported by the HIT-Kit, a process design kit that works with Cadence, Mentor Graphics and Agilent ADS design environments.
