Kulim, Malaysia, July 9, 2015 – SilTerra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd., a Malaysian home grown leading semiconductor wafer foundry, announced the mass production of its latest 0.18-micron BCDMOS (Bipolar, CMOS, DMOS) process technology. Officially known as D18V, this technology targets high voltage – high current applications which is well suited for wireless battery charger, DC-DC converter, load switches, high precision regulators and power management Integrated Circuits (IC) used in mobile consumer devices.
The Low voltage 1.8V device of D18V technology is fully compatible with standard foundry CMOS process whereas the 5V device is developed for high analog performance and built as the foundation for DMOS device. The D18V technology features the voltage spectrum running from 12V to 40V. SilTerra has demonstrated superior Rdson performance (14.2mohm per mm2 at BV >31V for a specific 26V NLDMOS device) with its DMOS process.
SilTerra’s 0.18-micron BCDMOS technology offers various process options including isolated 5V device with Deep-Nwell, High Poly Resistor, Metal-Insulator-Metal Capacitor, Power Line Metal as well as various ESD device options such as NLDMOS Power Clamp, Latch-up free SCR, Forward ESD diode, Cascade ggNMOS. These options are critical to enhance the efficiency and reliability of high performance analog products.
In addition, the D18V technology is complete with comprehensive PDK, standard library, IO Library and One-Time-Programming IP.
“I am pleased to announce the production release of SilTerra 0.18-micron BCDMOS technology and its associated PDK and IP’s. This platform enables SilTerra to engage with our customers to build solutions targeting the wireless charging, power switches and protection as well as power management applications in the fast-growing mobile and IOT markets.” quoted Yit Loong Lai, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing of SilTerra.
