Analogue/mixed-signal foundry X-FAB is working with Imec to offer multi-project wafer runs through imec’s EUROPRACTICE IC Service for X-FAB’s 0.18 micrometer SOI HV process (XT018) and a junction-isolated HV process (XH018).
The offered service enables small start-ups and academic institutions throughout Europe to access the full functionality of X-FAB’s high-voltage/low-power 0.18 micrometer technology and prototype ASIC designs in a cost-effective way.
The EUROPRACTICE IC Service offered by imec and Fraunhofer brings ASIC design and manufacturing capability within the technical and financial reach of anyone who wishes to use ASICs.
It offers low-cost ASIC prototyping and small volume production ramp-up to European universities and publicly funded research institutes for microelectronic and microsystem design through multi-project wafer (MPW) and dedicated wafer runs.
“Through our cooperation with imec’s EUROPRACTICE service we access an innovative network of start-up companies, universities and institutes across Europe,” says X-FAB CEO Rudi De Winter, “one growth area in which Europe is playing a leading role is the More than Moore domain. Offering technologies to integrate more and more functions in one IC, such as analog components, high-voltage electronics, non-volatile memories and controllers is X-FAB’s core competency. We believe that our collaboration with Imec offers new opportunities for semiconductor researchers and developers in Europe to continue to innovate in the field of More than Moore.”
X-FAB’s XH018 is the first and only 0.18 micrometer platform with high-temperature, high-voltage (HV) and non-volatile memory (NVM) capability including Flash and NVRAM IP. This modular mixed-signal high-voltage CMOS technology extends the operating temperature range of integrated circuits to +175°C. With the ability to integrate HV and NVM in a single platform, it is ideal for automotive applications and for motor control and power management or power-conversion applications for a wide range of voltages in industrial, medical and consumer systems.
X-FAB’s XT018 is the only trench dielectric isolated SOI foundry process with 200V MOS capability at 180nm. With an operating temperature range of -40 to 175°C, it supports a new generation of cost-effective “Super Smart Power” technologies. The XT018 process is ideally suited for high-performance systems requiring multiple voltage domains integrated and isolated in one chip. For example, it is useful for medical ultrasound applications and for applications that need bidirectional isolation, such as piezo actuators and capacitive-driven micromechanics.
The MPW service for X-FAB’s XT018 and XH018 technology is available now through EUROPRACTICE at: http://www.europractice-ic.com/technologies_XFAB.php.
