Freescale Technology Forum, PARIS Freescale Semiconductor has introduced a dozen products using 90nm process technology on 300mm wafers since the first release in October 2004.
And according to Dennis Griot, Senior Vice President and General Manager EMEA at Freescale, these have all been 'right-the-first-time', producing fully functional samples in customer applications after only one pass.
The products include digital, analog, RF and embedded memory devices for diverse end applications, such as wireless handsets, printers, enterprise networking components and wireless infrastructure equipment.
Dr. Claudine Simson, Freescale's Chief Technology Officer, said, “Our achievements at 90-nm over the past year set the stage for successful 65-nm prototyping, which we will begin in November.”
Freescale's 90nm products were introduced in Crolles2, the joint Freescale, STMicroelectronics and Philips R&D/pilot manufacturing facility located in Crolles, France.
