X-FAB XP018 Technology Platform

X-FAB Silicon Foundries introduced their XP018 technology platform. The foundry process features the industry’s lowest mask count for the modular combination of digital, analog and high-voltage features with embedded Flash. The X-FAB XP018 technology is available now for tape-ins. It includes pre-released IP for the memory options. Full qualification will follow in 2012.

XP018 Technology Platform

  • Unique combination of high voltage and embedded non-volatile memory (NVM)
  • Enables system-on-chip (SoC) integration requiring up to 60V operating voltage and 5V power supply
  • Requires fewer than 30 masks — the industry’s lowest mask count
  • Enables a new generation of reliable and efficient power management, digital control and other power control SoC applications
  • RDSon to enable small chip sizes and lower costs
  • Process is ideal for automotive applications and the next generation of power management applications
  • A cost-effective way to design smart systems-on-chip
  • Process topology features a wide range of NVM options including poly fuse, OTP, EEPROM and Flash
