Semiconductor processing technology is down to the deep submicron nodes, and volume production of 28nm semiconductors has already started. Socionext is working with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (TSMC) for manufacturing of 40nm process and further. By the synergetic effect of the world's best manufacturing capability of TSMC and the quality-control system and design-engineering ability of Socionext, we will continue to lead the LSI industry in design and manufacture of cutting-edge custom SoCs of 28nm process and beyond.
For the most-advanced technologies from 28nm to 0.18µm, information on the ASIC products best suited for the customer's products are provided.
ASIC Product Lineup
The standard cells, by optimizing chip sizes, realize LSIs with higher integration and performance than is possible with macro-embedded cell arrays.
Macros whose sizes have been optimized at the transistor level can be implemented on gate arrays, enabling high-performance LSIs. A wide range of frames can be offered to the customers.
Gate / Array
Chips where the transistors (basic cells) are regularly placed are prepared. In them, only routing is provided. Thus, gate arrays shorten development time.
