STMicroelectronics Prototypes in 28nm CMOS

STMicroelectronics announced that the CMOS 28nm process is now available for prototyping to universities, research labs and companies through the silicon brokerage services provided by CMP.

ST said this milestone builds on the successful collaboration that has allowed universities and companies to access previous CMOS generations such as 45nm (introduced in 2008), 65nm (introduced in 2006), 90nm (introduced in 2004), and 130nm (introduced in 2003). CMP is also offering 65nm and 130nm SOI (Silicon-On-Insulator), as well as 130nm SiGe processes from STMicroelectronics.

The CMP multi-project wafer service allows organizations to obtain small quantities--typically from a few tens to a few thousand units--of advanced ICs. The cost of the 28nm CMOS process has been fixed to 15,000 Euros/mm2, with a minimum charge of 1mm2 (Users can order a die area as small as 1mm2).http://www.st.com http://cmp.imag.fr
