South Korean foundry vendor Dongbu HiTek has rolled out BD180LV, a new 180-nm process technology.
The new mixed-signal process optimizes nLDMOS transistors with the industry’s lowest Rsp (specific on-resistance), according to Dongbu. It supports 7V-to-30V operating voltages.
“We believe we’ve developed a leading-edge BCDMOS technology that surpasses all foundry offerings and challenges the very best of the IDMs in terms of Rsp, breakdown voltage, and reliability,” said Jae Song, Dongbu HiTek's vice president of sales and marketing, in a statement.
“The Ids-Vds curve shows very stable characteristics up to 27.5V with actual off-state and on-state breakdown voltages of 36V and 33V, respectively. At 5.0Vgs and 0.1Vds, the Rsp was 0.0145 ohms square millimeter -- the lowest ever reported in the semiconductor industry,” according to a paper from the firm
