MagnaChip Launches Production of 0.18um EEPROM Process Featuring High Reliability With Small Cell Size and Low Cost Solution

Technology Targets Smart Card, Banking Card, RFID and Medical Applications

SEOUL, South Korea, Feb. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- MagnaChip Semiconductor Ltd., a leading global designer, developer and manufacturer of image sensor solutions, mixed-signal and digital multimedia semiconductors, today announced it has commenced production of 0.18um EEPROM process technology for smart cards, banking cards, RFID, medical, and other applications.

The 0.18um EEPROM process technology has been qualified and characterized successfully using 1 mega bit macro blocks. This technology offers minimum 300K cycling as well as a minimum of 10 years of data retention at under 150C. Further, the EEPROM cell size of 0.95um2 results in a chip size benefit for customers.

The process is compatible with a logic process and has design support with a PDK and MagnaChip's complete library. Various macro memory blocks can be supplied by a third party IP provider. A range of low power process options are available, particularly for very low leakage applications such as medical and automotive.

Sang Park, Chairman and CEO of MagnaChip, said, "We remain focused on expanding our technology leadership in support of our customers worldwide. We have refined our 0.18um EEPROM process to offer an exceedingly small cell size and a true low cost solution. Further, we now plan to merge high voltage processes with 0.18 EEPROM to offer additional customer applications. We are also working to strengthen reliability with increased cycling."
