Infineon to Cooperate with Taiwanese Winbond and Mosel Vitelic to Secure Higher Memory Chip Production Capacity

12.03.2002


Infineon Technologies AG (FSE/NYSE: IFX) today announced that it has successfully concluded its talks with the Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturers Winbond Electronics Corp. and Mosel Vitelic Inc., both Hsinchu. Further strengthening its position in the memory market, Infineon has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Winbond and agreements with Mosel Vitelic. With these steps Infineon will increase its total production capacity for DRAM chips by more than 20,000 wafer starts per month.



Under the terms of the MoU with Winbond, Infineon will license its advanced DRAM trench technology to Winbond and, beginning in 2003, gain exclusive access to standard DRAM chips manufactured using this technology. Under the terms of the agreement with Mosel Vitelic, Infineon is increasing its share in the output of their joint venture ProMOS Technologies Inc. from 38 to 48 percent, effective as of March 1, 2002.

“Executing on our strategy to further strengthen our ties with Taiwanese partners, Infineon considers these cooperations as a major step to prepare for the upcoming market recovery”, commented Dr. Ulrich Schumacher, President and CEO of Infineon Technologies. “Shifting production capacity to Infineon along with building on our leading technology and cost position will pave the way for further augmenting our worldwide market position in the consolidating DRAM industry.”

The technology transfer from Infineon will enable Winbond to manufacture standard DRAM products exclusively for sale to Infineon and to develop and sell proprietary products using Infineon’s DRAM technology. Furthermore, Infineon will receive license fees and royalties for any proprietary products designed and sold by Winbond using the relevant DRAM technology. Winbond will upgrade its DRAM facilities in Hsinchu to Infineon’s 0.11-micron technology which will lead to a cost advantage per chip. Subject to market conditions, Infineon expects that production at Winbond will begin with 256-Mbit DDR memory chips, with a potential future migration to 512-Mbit components.

In 1996 Infineon (formerly Siemens Semiconductors) and Mosel Vitelic formed their ProMOS joint venture for DRAM production in Hsinchu, Taiwan. Since then, Infineon also entered into several technology transfer agreements with ProMOS including 300mm technology and various generations of manufacturing process technology. ProMOS is publicly traded at the TAISDAQ stock exchange since May 1999.

Following Infineon’s 300mm manufacturing ramp up in Dresden, ProMOS is preparing to introduce 300mm technology as well. ProMOS is now qualified for production with the leading edge 0.14-micron-based technology licensed from Infineon last fall. The manufacturer’s main products include 128-Mbit and 256-Mbit DRAM chips in synchronous (SDRAM) and double data rate (DDR) configurations, primarily for use in servers and other computer applications.

Im Focus: Die schnellste lichtgetriebene Stromquelle der Welt

Die Stromregelung ist eine der wichtigsten Komponenten moderner Elektronik, denn über schnell angesteuerte Elektronenströme werden Daten und Signale übertragen. Die Ansprüche an die Schnelligkeit der Datenübertragung wachsen dabei beständig. In eine ganz neue Dimension der schnellen Stromregelung sind nun Wissenschaftler der Lehrstühle für Laserphysik und Angewandte Physik an der Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) vorgedrungen. Ihnen ist es gelungen, im „Wundermaterial“ Graphen Elektronenströme innerhalb von einer Femtosekunde in die gewünschte Richtung zu lenken – eine Femtosekunde entspricht dabei dem millionsten Teil einer milliardstel Sekunde.

Der Trick: die Elektronen werden von einer einzigen Schwingung eines Lichtpulses angetrieben. Damit können sie den Vorgang um mehr als das Tausendfache im...

Im Focus: The fastest light-driven current source

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Applied Physics at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have succeeded in switching on a current with a desired direction in graphene using a single laser pulse within a femtosecond ¬¬ – a femtosecond corresponds to the millionth part of a billionth of a second. This is more than a thousand times faster compared to the most efficient transistors today.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: Effizientere und präzisere Kontakte dank Roboter-Kollaboration

Auf der diesjährigen productronica in München stellt das Fraunhofer-Institut für Lasertechnik ILT das Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, kurz LaserTAB, vor: Die Aachener Experten zeigen, wie sich dank neuer Optik und Roboter-Unterstützung Batteriezellen und Leistungselektronik effizienter und präziser als bisher lasermikroschweißen lassen.

Auf eine geschickte Kombination von Roboter-Einsatz, Laserscanner mit selbstentwickelter neuer Optik und Prozessüberwachung setzt das Fraunhofer ILT aus Aachen.

Im Focus: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.
