||TSMC, Altera to partner in bid to boost products
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC, 台積電) yesterday announced it would partner with long-term customer Altera Corp to supply more power-efficient and smaller embedded flash (EmbFlash) memory and SRAM chips with its new 55 nanometer process technology.
The 55 nanometer EmbFlash delivers faster computing, increases gate density by 10 times and shrinks flash and SRAM cell sizes by 70 percent and 80 percent respectively, compared with the prior generation embedded flash, a joint statement by the companies said.
The new flash memory and SRAM chips would be used in various applications within the automotive and industrial sectors, it said.
TSMC and Altera have collaborated in developing chips on a wide range of process technologies, including advanced 20 nanometer technology. Their latest partnership came one day after Intel Corp said it would make 14 nanometer chips for Altera.
