SAN JOSE, Calif. One year after its entry into the 90-nm chip market, Freescale Semiconductor Inc. is readying its 65-nm devices.
“We have addressed many of the industry’s widely reported challenges with 90-nm and are applying our expertise to the next generations of technology,” said Freescale’s Chief Technology Officer Claudine Simson, in a statement. “Our achievements at 90-nm over the past year set the stage for successful 65-nm prototyping, which we will begin in November.”
Since initiating manufacturing of 90-nm product designs on 300-mm wafers in October 2004, Freescale has introduced 12 new products on 90-nm low-power CMOS technology.
Freescale’s newest 90-nm products were introduced in Crolles2, the joint Freescale, STMicroelectronics and Phillips R&D/pilot manufacturing facility located in Crolles, France.
