Still, it would be difficult for Afghanistan to follow India's lead directly, since the skill set of the Afghan work force does not come close to that of India in knowledge of computer software, Janbaz said. Perhaps the talent for close handwork that goes with the traditional crafts of weaving and rug making could be employed in microchip packaging and lead frame assembly, he speculated, pointing to similarly humble beginnings for high-tech industries in Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

Jazz Semiconductor was a specialty foundry company formed by Conexant Systems Inc., which now appears to have quickly gone to a fab-lite strategy (see May 6, 2002, story ).

The alliance provides Jazz customers with a second source of capacity for process technologies currently manufactured in its Newport Beach fabrication facility, the company said.

It was not made clear whether the venture is an independent company but Jazz indicated that ASMC would be able to make use of the processes provided by Jazz.

ASMC's experience in manufacturing BiCMOS technology makes them an ideal partner to ensure a timely and efficient ramp of certain Jazz processes in the new facility,” said Theodore Zhu, vice president of sales, strategy and business development for Jazz Semiconductor, in a statement.

Zhu continued: One of the primary markets for SiGe products is wireless handsets, which require integration of RF functions at low power consumption and at low cost. The agreement provides Jazz customers access to RF and mixed-signal process technologies in China where the wireless market is expected to grow significantly, and provides a second sourcing alternative.”

According to China has become the largest mobile communications market in the world, with more than 200 million mobile phone subscribers and more than 100 million handsets sold in 2002 alone.

It is our longstanding policy to promote the advancement of technology and to support the localization of manufacturing. We thus welcome the establishment of this Jazz/ASMC alliance. With this strategic alliance, China has the capability to provide advanced silicon germanium, RF, and analog foundry services to RF IC manufacturers both abroad and emerging in China.” a spokesman for The Ministry of Information Industry (MII) of China is reported saying in a statement from Jazz.

The wafer fab is expected to begin volume production in the fourth quarter of 2003, producing 30,000 200-mm diameter wafers per month.

PRINCETON &#151 Die Sarnoff Corporation, ein aus RCAs Forschungslaboratorien hervorgegangenes Unternehmen, das jetzt TV- und digitale Videotechnologie entwickelt, nimmt digitale Videobearbeitungstechnologie in seine lizenzierbare Circuit-Core-Palette auf.

Faraday, a Taiwanese provider of intellectual property (IP) cores and ASIC design services, is attempting to get a jump on the competition in the emerging 90-nm chip space. It claims to have taped out” its products by using the 90-nm foundry process from UMC and EDA tools from Magma Design Automation Inc.

The announcement marks the initial completion of a comprehensive set of IP and library modules optimized for UMC's 90-nm process, according to Hsinchu-based UMC. Last year, UMC announced its 90-nm process, equipped with copper interconnects, low-k dielectrics, as well as a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) option (see July 7, 2002 story ).

The availability of Faraday's 90-nanometer IP represents another important step towards making this technology widely accessible to customers who require the highest performance process for their products,” said Fu Tai Liou, president of the America Business Group for UMC, in a statement.

Still, analysts wonder when 90-nm chip production will move into the mainstream. Tools, transistors and libraries for the 90-nm node might be there for the taking, but design and process complexities will conspire to push out the production of these next-generation chips until 2005, a panel of experts agreed at DesignCon conference this week (see today’s story ).

Microprocessor makers are rushing to add encryption and data security features to their chips as the technology rapidly becomes a must-have item for PCs and wireless devices.
