Fujitsu and Fraunhofer IIS co-operate on nanometre technology

Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) are facilitating the development of future-proof nanometre chips for their customers by exchanging expertise and granting mutual access to their IP pools.

Research and development projects aimed at multimedia, image processing and navigation applications have been under way since the beginning of 2010 as part of this partnership.

Fujitsu is making its analogue and digital nanometre technology libraries, IP (intellectual property) pool and expertise available, whilst Fraunhofer IIS is complementing this with its own IP and  experience in IC and system design. Chip designs, right up to the GDSII data, are developed and evaluated together with customers. Fujitsu said it is producing prototypes in 90nm and 65nm CMOS technologies on multi-project wafers (MPW) at significantly reduced mask costs.
