2009 Press Releases
Ready For 110nm CMOS Logic Technology Pilot Production
Kulim, Malaysia, March 25, 2009 – SilTerra Malaysia
Sdn. Bhd., a leading wafer foundry provider, has officially
debut the industry foundry compatible copper-based 110nm CMOS
Logic Technology as the 10% optical shrink for it’s
copper-based 130nm CMOS Logic Technology, which has been in
mass production for more than 2 years. The technology, code
name CL110G, applies 10% linear optical shrink on customer
130nm database. The electrical device specification and SPICE
model of CL110G are optimized to match with the original 130nm
design. The CL110G technology is developed with advanced
processing tools to enhance yield performance.
could take advantage of the new CL110G platform to squeeze
extra dies per wafer with uncompromised device performance.
Customer will gain about 19% of extra die per wafer with
reference to the pure digital 130nm CMOS Logic design. CL110G
is now ready for customers’ prototypes and we are excited by
the level of enthusiasm from our customers all over the world.
In the current economy downturn, consumers are more cost
conscious but their appetite for high performance and low
power handheld gadgets remains high. Our customers are
aggressively looking for solutions to serve this market better
and they find this technology offers a timely solution for
them to engage the new opportunity especially in emerging
markets such as China and India“ said Yit Loong Lai, Vice
President of Worldwide Sales & Marketing.
CL110G technology is optimized for high performance and high
density complex design with demanding product performance.
This technology features eight layers of dual damascene copper
metallization, borderless contacts and vias with FSG
inter-metal dielectric. The technology is supported by a
complete set of foundry foundation Intellectual Property (IP)
from Virage Logic, ARM and other silicon IP providers to help
our customers shorten time-to-market and reduce development
cost. The design flow is also validated in Synopsys and Mentor
