Chartered to make 45nm CPUs for AMD in 2009

Posted on Friday, November 02 2007 @ 01:21:54 CET by


Chartered Semiconductors claims it will start manufacturing 45nm processors for AMD by mid-2009, just a bit later than AMD itself.
“We are sparing no efforts in our 45nm development […] and expect to enable our customers with the technology from the end of this year,” said Chia Song Hwee, the president and chief executive officer at Chartered Semiconductor, according to a transcript located at Seeking Alpha web-site.

Typically contract semiconductor manufactures, such as Chartered or TSMC, first develop their bulk process technologies and then supply their partners so-called libraries of elements and general design rules. Intellectual property owners have to develop their chipsets according to guidelines of the new process technologies; therefore, there is a timeframe between availability of fabrication technologies and volume manufacturing.

“Our 45nm technology bring up is on track. I have also talked in the past that from the industry adoption and ramp standpoint, we should [hardly] see any meaningful volume until probably [the] early part of mid-2009, which roughly [is similar with the ramp of 65nm process technology],” Mr. Hwee said.
