Samsung Electronics diversifies its 8-inch foundry offerings with new RF/IoT and fingerprint technology solutions

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced more value added 8-inch (200mm) technology solutions for its foundry customers. On top of its existing eFlash, Power, display driver IC (DDI) and CMOS image sensor (CIS) offerings, RF/IoT and fingerprint technology solutions are now available through Samsung’s 8-inch foundry services.

Currently, customers are working closely with Samsung to utilize the company’s cutting-edge 8-inch technology offerings in various applications. All 8-inch offerings, ranging from 180nm to 65nm, are processed at Line 6, a highly automated facility in Giheung, Korea.

“Customers’ interests are very high given the industry’s needs for alternative 8-inch solutions,” said Ryan Lee, Vice President of Foundry Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “By expanding our technology offerings into the RF/IoT and fingerprint segments, we will enable our customers to take advantage of Samsung’s state-of-the-art 8-inch solutions in a broader range of applications.”

Samsung’s 8-inch process technology offerings now include the following solutions:

  • eFlash : 130nm, 65nm
  • Power: 130nm, 90nm (BCD+eFlash)
  • Display Driver IC : 180nm, 130nm, 90nm, 70nm
  • CMOS Image Sensor: 90nm
  • RF/IoT : 90nm (Ultra low leakage device)
  • Fingerprint Sensor: 180nm

The 8-inch foundry market has been one of the focal points since Samsung Foundry became a separate business last May. In this regard, Samsung has firmly established customer centric 8-inch service capabilities with great multi project wafer (MPW) programs as well as intellectual property (IP), and launched the Samsung Advanced Foundry Ecosystem (SAFE™) program this year.
