Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation (SMIC) introduced its 38nm NAND Flash process technology, making it the only foundry to manufacture NAND products for its customers. This process platform has been independently developed in its entirety by SMIC.

NAND Flash is the fastest growing non-volatile memory (NVM) product in recent years. The 38nm NAND Flash technology targets diversified high volume speciality applications, such as embedded products, mobile computing, TV, and Set-top Box (STB). Customers are also leveraging this technology to address Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) NAND market as well as the increasing usage of IoT related products. SMIC's successful launch of 38nm NAND Flash technology helps customers to meet the growing demands of this market both in China and globally.

"SMIC has developed a series of speciality NOR flash platform from 130nm down to 65nm in the past. Through the dedicated and methodical effort of SMIC's R&D team, we have achieved an important diversification in offering 38nm NAND. This will serve as a solid foundation for us to move forward on the development of more advanced nodes such as 2x/1xnm and 3D NAND Flash process technology. SMIC is committed to drive advanced NAND Flash for fabless customers that meet high quality standards," said Dr. Shiuh-Wuu Lee, Executive Vice President of Technology Development of SMIC.

SMIC provides integrated circuit foundry and technology services at 0.35µ to 28nm. It has a 300mm wafer fabrication facility and a 200mm mega-fab in Shanghai; a 300mm mega-fab in Beijing and a majority owned 300mm fab for advance nodes under development; a 200mm fab in Tianjin; and a 200mm fab project under development in Shenzhen.
