FABRICATION & PACKAGING
UMC is a world-leading semiconductor foundry that manufactures advanced
process ICs for applications spanning every major sector of the semiconductor
industry. UMC delivers the cutting-edge foundry technologies that enable
sophisticated system-on-chip (SOC) designs, including 0.13-micron copper/low
k, embedded DRAM, and mixed signal/RFCMOS. In addition, UMC is a leader
in 300mm manufacturing with three strategically located 300mm fabs to
serve a global customer base: Fab 12A in Taiwan, UMCi in Singapore (completion
in 2002), and AU Pte. Ltd., a joint venture facility with AMD also located
in Singapore (production in 2005). In addition to wafer manufacturing,
UMC customers benefit from services such as extensive silicon-verified
IP resources, design libraries, and full front-end and backend support.

MOSIS is a low-cost prototyping and small-volume production service
for VLSI circuit development. Since 1981, MOSIS has fabricated more
than 50,000 circuit designs for commercial firms, government agencies,
and research and educational institutions around the world. MOSIS provides
access to a wide variety of semiconductor processes, technology files,
design kits, libraries and IP to create designs for processes offered
by many different foundries, accessible through a variety of design
flows (digital, analog, mixed-signal) and CAD tools. Mask generation,
wafer fabrication, and device packaging are contracted to leading industry
vendors. MOSIS keeps the cost of fabricating prototype quantities low
by aggregating multiple designs onto one mask set. This allows customers
to share overhead costs associated with mask making, wafer fabrication,
and assembly. MOSIS offers dedicated COT runs as well.
