April 11, 2001 – Austin, TX – Motorola has unveiled an advanced 0.13-micron CMOS process platform technology. HiPerMOS7, or HiP7, has been designed to enable Motorola’s Semiconductor Products Sector (SPS) to build system-on-a-chip solutions for applications from low -ower wireless to high-performance network and computer products. According to the company, HiP7 is its most dense, most modular, and lowest power system-on-chip platform process.
The company plans to roll out a number of products based on this technology. The products will be designed for needs in wireless communication, networking/computing, intelligent home and transportation markets. “The ability to reuse design blocks is one of the key technology advantages of our HiP7 process,” said Suresh Venkatesan, HiP7 Process Technology Manager for Motorola’s DigitalDNA Laboratories.
Currently, Motorola is running embedded microprocessor cores on this new process. Production is expected to begin in 2Q01 in Motorola’s facility in Austin.
