HSINCHU, Taiwan -- Dec. 15, 2016 -- Faraday Technology Corporation (TWSE: 3035), a leading ASIC design service and IP provider, today announced its 55nm eFlash-based ASIC solution is ready to support better MCU performance. By skipping 90nm, Faraday's MCU ASIC path strides directly from 8-inch 0.11μm to 12-inch 55nm eFlash process node, offering much lower power/leakage and significant performance gain. Faraday has already achieved multiple design wins, such as MFP (Multifunction printer) and smart meter.
This 55nm eFlash-based ASIC solution consists of Faraday's PowerSlash™ library and memory IP with Turbo Mode feature to accelerate device performance; Faraday also provides versatile interface IPs and the Uranus™ SoC development platform to speed-up the development of the SoC silicon. In addition to the 55nm design wins, Faraday's eFlash solution has been implemented in touch panels, factory automation, and automotive appliances to address the ever-expanding market.
"In order to meet the growing demand for advanced MCUs, Faraday has readied the new migration path with the 55nm eFlash-based ASIC solution," said Steve Wang, President of Faraday. "We have abundant experience and knowledge to implement our ASIC solution at UMC's fab, helping obtain better yield improvement for the eFlash blocks. By utilizing this 55nm solution, we are confident that we can assist our customers to seize business opportunities in the market with cost advantages and faster time-to-market."
