Atmel Corp. and Motorola's Semiconductor Products Sector (SPS) have concluded an agreement to second source Motorola's 0.355m RF BiCMOS SiGe:C and copper inductor wafer process. According to Motorola, the process uses advanced SiGe:C and copper inductor metal layers to implement a process technology for advanced RF designs. This technology is expected to support operating frequencies for next generation cellular, WCDMA or UMTS, WLAN and 802.11a markets.

Atmel and Motorola have begun transferring the process technologies to Atmel's high volume 8-inch fab in Rousset, France, where Atmel intends to have the technology operating in the fourth quarter of this year. The process transfer is planned to be database compatible and electrically equivalent, to allow customers to design products for manufacture at either the SPS or Atmel wafer fabrication facilities.
