Globalfoundries, Inc. and Infineon Technologies have recently announced that they’re having a joint collaboration for developing and production agreement for 40 nm embedded flash or eFlash process technology.
This partnership to help develop and manufacture Infineon’s eFlash cell design which will be used for manufacturing of automotive and security microcontrollers. The 40nm eFlash MCU will be made by Globalfoundries fab plants, initially in Singapore and subsequently in Dresden, Germany.
Both the company have a very old relationship where they’ve jointly collaborated in development and manufacturing, including the development and manufacturing of CMOS-based low power mobile phone chips.
Arunjai Mittal, one of the members of management board of Infeneon Technologies said,”Next generation embedded Flash microcontrollers with 40nm process structures will further enhance our competitive strength in the automotive, industrial as well as chip card and security markets.”
The agreement which involves Globalfoundries is consistent with Infineon’s plans to be involved in CMOS-Based 65nm technology, whose security microcontroller’s process and product qualification is planned for the second half of 2015, whereas the production of automotive microcontroller is set to start in first half of 2017.
