austriamicrosystems announces 50V high-voltage CMOS process with embedded flash

Dec. 15, 2006 — austriamicrosystems‘ foundry business unit announced a 50V High-Voltage CMOS process with embedded Flash. The company says this is the consequent next step in extending austriamicrosystems’ position in High-Voltage CMOS technology.

The new Flash process technology is, as the High-Voltage CMOS technology, a modular extension of austriamicrosystems’ 0.35um CMOS process. 100 percent compatibility to the base process allows re-use of IP Blocks and adding Flash memory to it on a single chip. The High-Voltage CMOS process is eminently suited for harsh environment, making it ideal for designs in power management, automotive or medical applications.

“Offering the first 50V 0.35um High-Voltage CMOS process technology with embedded Flash clearly strengthens our leading position in the High Voltage arena and as a foundry service supplier,” said Peter Gasteiner, senior vice president and general manager, in a prepared statement. “We are very pleased to offer our customers an excellent HV-CMOS Flash technology which is highly reliable and robust, and offers the unique feature of several voltage levels on the same chip. This gives clients an enormous competitive advantage for their products in applications like power management, automotive, medical or for MEMS controller.”
