SMIC extends 45nm process to 40nm and 55nm

Posted on Saturday, October 17 2009 @ 00:28:50 CEST by

EE Times reports SMIC announced plans to extend its 45nm bulk CMOS to 40nm and 55nm geometries:
The 45-nm process is based on technology licensed from IBM. Applications for the additional processes are much the same as for the original 45-nm process and include multimedia products, graphics chips, chipsets, and mobile devices such as handsets integrated with 3G/4G.

When the additional nodes would become available was not disclosed. Nor was it said when SMIC would implement low-leakage versions of the process to complement a general-purpose process, which the 45-nm node is reported to be.
