Together provide 14 nm FinFET semiconductor manufacturing process, Samsung




Together provide 14 nm FinFET semiconductor manufacturing process, Samsung and GLOBALFOUNDRIES will work together GLOBALFOUNDRIES , Samsung , market dynamics , News

The two sides hope to work together to provide customers more manufacturing sources, reduce design costs.

Samsung, GLOBALFOUNDRIES two semiconductor manufacturers announced a strategic alliance to jointly develop 14 FinFET semiconductor manufacturing process, the next three weeks in Han Guohua City, Texas, Austin, and GLOBALFOUNDRIES is located in Saratoga, New York plant will have the ability to provide customers with production 14 nm FinFET products.

14 nm FinFET primarily by Samsung led the development and authorization to GLOBALFOUNDRIES, from the original 20nm FinFET scaling out 14nm FinFET process will be able to provide energy-efficient, large-scale SoC design and manufacturing; dimensional design FinFET will be able to provide more than the traditional planar transistors faster speeds, lower power consumption, and save even more space.

Currently the two companies have begun to provide relevant authorization process, PDK process design kit, convenient designers can quickly complete a complete design platform for simulation, verification, shorten development time. When the entire production process from 14nm FinFET is expected to begin by the end of 2014. AMD currently has plans in the future to build products using 14nm FinFET.

The greatest significance of cooperation between the two companies that Fabless IC design companies in the use of this process, they can use a design, verification specification can Samsung, be put into operation between multiple sources without re-GF for various manufacturing processes differences simulation validation work can effectively improve productivity and reduce costs.
