A joint development project between Silterra Malaysia Sdn. Bhd. and Europe's IMEC research center, has produced an 8Mbit SRAM fabricated in an all-copper, foundry-compatible 0.13?m CMOS manufacturing process. The memory was manufactured at Silterra's wafer fabrication facility in Malaysia, the company said Tuesday (Nov. 30).

The company said it was preparing to ramp its 0.13?m CMOS back in October 2004.

A team of Silterra and IMEC engineers has worked since July to produce an 8Mbit and a 4Mbit device, and both were functional on the initial development lot processed in Silterra's fab in Kulim, Malaysia, the company said. The process supports up to eight layers of copper wiring.

"We are now fine tuning the process, putting the customer design kit together, and we should be ready to start production in 2005 as planned," said Bruce Gray, president and interim CEO of Silterra, in a statement.

"The achievement of these results with Silterra in only four-and-a-half months is simply amazing," said Gilbert Declerck, president and CEO of IMEC, in the same statement. Silterra plans to distribute the design kit to customers in Q2 2005 and start pilot production in July.
