X-FAB Brings 180nm Process To French Manufacturing Site


X-FAB Silicon Foundries, the analog/mixed-signal and
specialty foundry, has announced that its popular high-voltage 180nm CMOS
semiconductor process (XH018) is now available for automotive applications via
the company's production facility in France. This is a major step in X-FAB's
plan to offer dual sourcing for all its 180nm processes (in both CMOS and SOI)
- so that continuity of supply is always assured.

Located in Corbeil-Essonnes, just outside Paris, the X-FAB
manufacturing plant in France is the company's largest in Europe. It has
15,000m2 of used cleanroom area, with additional 9,000m2 cleanroom space that
can be equipped for future demand. The high-voltage XH018 technology now
available in France complements the RF-SOI technology already in production at
that site for many years.

Specifically optimized for automotive, industrial and
medical applications, the XH018 mixed-signal process has a modular architecture
that delivers maximum customer flexibility. Besides supporting high-temperature
and low leakage operation, XH018 comes with advanced PDK features to improve
the design robustness and enables first-time-right functional silicon. The
offering includes advanced digital memory IP optimized for power, performance
and area as well as analog/mixed-signal reference design kits and tools for
checking operating conditions and ESD robustness.

“We are very pleased that our XH018 high-voltage process,
currently running in our high volume fab in Malaysia, has now been successfully
installed also in France. With this, we now have a dual source for our main
180nm platform and the capacity needed to serve the increasing demands of our
customers” states Rudi De Winter, X-FAB's CEO.”

From this point onwards, X-FAB France will be accepting
XH018 tape-ins for automotive applications.
