CMP Introducing 0.35 u CMOS-Opto Process

 

Grenoble, December 2003 - CMP announced the introduction of the CMOS-Opto 0.35 u process from austriamicrosystems AG. The optical process C35B301 provides enhanced optical sensitivity for embedded photodiodes. It enables the design of high density photo sensors, APS, and CMOS cameras.

 

The process is fully compatible with the already supported 0.35 u CMOS, thus enabling IP reuse with the existing CMOS standard-cell libraries. The Peripheral cell libraries are available for 3.3 V and 5 V with high driving capabilities and excellent ESD performance.

 

The design kit is supported under Cadence CAD tools, and available in Q1 2004. CMP offers 5 MPW runs for this process in 2004: 26 January, 19 April, 05 July, 27 September, 06 December.
