Interesting. I was wondering how much, if at all, is their fab technology dependent on foreign suppliers and in what areas.

As for its 28nm process technology, SMIC has been working closely with IBM. But over the years, SMIC has accumulated its own IPs. Earlier this year, SMIC announced that it has been selected as a 2012-2013 constituent of the Ocean Tomo 300 Patent Index. The Ocean Tomo 300 Patent Index is the first stock index based on the value of corporate intellectual property. The Patent Index is composed of 300 companies chosen for the value of their patent portfolios relative to book value. As of January 2013, SMIC claims that it held more than 3,000 patents, with 3,800 patent applications pending.

A large number to maintain, may be more liability than asset.

It seems impossible to take 28 nm share from TSMC or even GlobalFoundries. Except maybe by cost reduction, an extremely bad way to do it. When can they offer FinFET and/or SOI?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
