AMI Semiconductor (AMIS) has partnered with BAE Systems to develop BAEs next generation micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) gyroscopes. BAE’s Inertial Systems division developed the capacitive gyro, which senses changes of direction or orientation. AMI Semiconductors smart power I3T80 mixed-signal process is being used to develop a compact and low-cost data acquisition ASIC to process the data received from the gyro. The 0.35micron I3T80 process can deliver gate densities of 15,000/mm2 and can handle voltages up to 80V.

Toshiba has developed a family of power MOSFETS using its new “Ultra High Speed U-MOS III” (UHS U-MOS III) technology. The process represents the company’s first use of aluminum strap (Al-strap) connections to improve typical on-resistance (RDSon) by 34% at a Vgs of 4.5V and reduce gate charge (QSW) by 14% compared to U-MOS III with standard wire bond technology. The family of UHS U-MOS III with Al-strap MOSFETs is targeted for synchronous rectification applications in DC-to-DC converters and in power supplies for desktop and mobile computers, servers, networking and telecom equipment.

Are Overlay specs advancing to be your worst nightmare? Are your rework rates headed up? Is the Litho cell not as productive as it could be? targoss™, itemic AG’s litho APC software, delivers results, driving down rework, increasing metrology tool utilization and reaching payback on the investment in a few short months. Proprietary algorithms calculate passing limits for every die per wafer or per lot, resulting in fewer measurements and better rework assessments. Decisions are transferred to operators for immediate dispositioning, while automatic lot splitting keeps engineering overhead to a minimum. targoss is modular and easy to integrate thanks to its advanced JAVA based architecture. It works with all brands of OVL metrology tools and with all types of exposure tools. A separate R-2-R unit allows itemic to set up a complete APC system or we can interface with existing APC frameworks. Click through to “info” below and we will send you a white paper on why itemic was chosen by a leading DRAM manufacturer for their worldwide OVL needs.

Toshiba reports that it has developed a working prototype of a high capacity dual-layer, single-sided, blue-laser rewritable optical disk. The Japanese company maintains that the new disk can easily be brought to mass production with only minimal adjustments to current DVD production facilities, and that its current capacity can be increased significantly. The new disk is also expected to promote lower production costs for next generation optical disks, while offering simple implementation of backward compatibility with todays generation of DVD formats.

Researchers from Yale University have used to arsenic antisites in gallium arsenide (GaAs) to produce optical transitions in the 1.5micron optical communications band (Nature Materials, advanced on-line publication, May 4, 2003). GaAs normally produces light around 0.85microns, which is not optimal for transmission in optical fibres. This has pushed the industry to use the more expensive indium phosphide based devices.
