SAMSUNG Electronics Develops 90-nanometer Process Technology for SOC Designs

Seoul, Korea - May 29, 2002: Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. announced a 90-nanometer cutting edge logic process technology for system on chip (SOC) designs. The company now enters the nano technology arena as it achieves this advanced process technology, obtaining a competitive stance in next-generation designs.


The 90-nanometer process technology is an essential feature for SOC devices as it enhances the speed and supports low-power consumption requirements. The high-speed, low-power consuming and high-performance SOC devices are major solutions for next generation IT equipments.


The new technology features major technology breakthroughs: an ultra thin 1.6nm gate insulating film, a 70nm effective gate length, a ultra shallow junction technology and copper damascene technology using low-k dielectric.


Moreover, speeds are enhanced by 30% in contrast to the current 0.13-micron process technology and memory density in SOC products is improved by integrating a 1.25-square micron SRAM cell, reducing the chip area by about 50%. The smaller chip size remarkably reduces manufacturing costs.
According to International Technology Roadmap of Semiconductor (ITRS), a renowned semiconductor technology forecaster, the 90-nanometer process technology is expected to be commercialized in 2004. Samsung Electronics?initial applications of the 90-nanometer SOC process technology are mobile phone CPUs, one of the company뭩 future core businesses, and SOC devices. The company will establish its 90-nanometer process portfolio with high-speed, low-voltage, memory embedded, and mixed signal RF features by 2003. Mass production for the 90-nanometer process technology is slated for 2004.
