온세미컨덕터, 110 나노미터 기술 및 지적재산권 투자로 ASIC 제품군 확대  Chinese Japanese

LSI에게 110 나노미터 프로세스, 실리콘 검증 IP 및 지원을 유연하게 제공 - 최신의 ASIC 및 SoC에 대한 비용 및 제품출시 시간을 최소화해

2009년4월16일 서울– 고효율 에너지의 고성능 실리콘 솔루션 선도업체인 온세미컨덕터(지사장 이종덕)가 LSI에게 자사의 주문형 집적회로(ASIC: Application Specific Integrated Circuit)를 제공함으로써 이 분야에서의 제품군을 추가로 확대했다. 본 계약에 따라 온세미컨덕터의 고객사들은 미국 오리건주 그레샴에 위치하는 온세미컨덕터의 웨이퍼 공정 라인에서 제공되는 원가절감형 110 나노미터 프로세스 기술 및 연관된 실리콘 검증 지적재산권(IP: intellectual property)을 더욱 활발히 사용하게 되었다.

110 나노미터 ‘시스템 플랫폼’ SP110은 유사한 기술과 비교할 때 초기개발비(NRE: non-recurring engineering)를 최소화하며 시장출시 시간을 단축시키는 고밀도, 고성능기술을 고객사들에게 제공한다. SP110은 450 MHz의 최대 동작주파수와 포괄적인 IP 포트폴리오를 통해 90 나노미터 이하의 기술과 연관된 개발비 및 공정 기술 간접비 없이 다양한 성능 및 기능 요구조건을 만족시킬 수 있다. 또한 SP110은 일부 130 나노미터급 주류 기술보다 더 나은 성능 및 더 낮은 전력소비 특성도 제공한다.

온세미컨덕터의 이 제품은 프로세스 이점, 포괄적인 IP 옵션 및 기술지원의 결합을 통해 커뮤니케이션, 소비재, 산업 및 의료부문의 고객사들이 필요로 하는 조건들을 모두 만족시킨다. SP110은 ITAR(International Traffic in Arms Regulation) 요구조건을 단대단(end-to-end)으로 모두 만족시키는 미국기반의 설계 인터페이스 및 가공 기술로서 군사 및 항공부문 애플리케이션에 매우 이상적인 솔루션이다. 온세미컨덕터는 또한 SP110용 QML 및 AS9100과 같은 군사 및 항공 분야에 특화된 품질기준도 계획하고있다.

온세미컨덕터의 사장 겸 CEO인 키이스 잭슨(Keith Jackson)은 “SP110에 대한 투자는 ASIC 분야에 있어서 당사가 갖는 지속적인 기술 우위의 전문성을 보여준다”며 “ 전력소비를 최소화하고 더 높은 디지털 콘텐츠 및 성능이 요구되는 미래의 특정용도 표준제품(ASSP: application specific standard product) 및 표준제품 플랫폼에도 이 기술을 활용할 계획”이라고 덧붙였다.

온세미컨덕터는 LSI와의 계약조건에 따라 PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet 및 XAUI 인터페이스 표준을 지원하는 SerDes 솔루션을 포함한 일련의 포괄적 IP를 제공하게 된다. 이에 따라 SP110 고객들은 USB 2.0, Ethernet MAC, 마이크로 컨트롤러, 타이밍 발생기 및 DDR 1/2/3 메모리 컨트롤러용 블록을 포함하는 온세미컨덕터 포트폴리오에서 통합 가능한 실리콘 검증 IP를 이용할 수있게 된다.

SP110은 2개의 RDL(redistribution layer)을 포함하여 최대 9개의 금속층을 제공하는 low-K 구리(Cu) 상호연결 기술을 활용하고 있다. 이 기술은 1.2 V의 코어 전압과 1.8 V, 2.5 V, 3.3 V, 5.0 V의 I/O 전압을 지원한다. 온세미컨덕터는 설계자를 위한 최적의 유연성을 보장하는 동시에 SP110용 연결 소자들에 대한 접속정보(netlist) 및 RTL 핸드오프(handoff) 방법도 제공한다.

온세미컨덕터의 디지털 및 혼합신호제품 부문 수석부사장인 밥 클로스터보어(Bob Klosterboer)는 “이 새로운 플랫폼을 통해 IP 전반의 자체적 솔루션을 확대함으로써 110 나노미터급ASIC 성능과 같은 유례 없는 종합적 프로세스의 이점도 더욱 신속히 제공할 수 있다”라고 말하면서 “온세미컨덕터는 SP110를 통해 기존의 고객들의 기술 기대치를 더욱 만족시키는 동시에 새로운 주문형 IC 시장부문에서의 입지를 더욱 강화할 것”이라고 덧붙였다.

LSI 고객 솔루션 사업부의 수석 부사장 겸 본부장인 수다카르 사바다(Sudhakar Sabada)는 “온세미컨덕터와 협력하여 당사의 강력한 실리콘 검증 110나노미터 프로세스 기술 및 IP를 더욱 확대하게 된 것에 대해 기쁘게 생각한다”라고 말하면서 “양사의 이와 같은 결합을 통해 온세미컨덕터는 광범위한 애플리케이션의 요구조건을 만족시킬 매력적인 설계 플랫폼을 고객에게 제공할 수있게 되었다”라고 덧붙였다.
