United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC) and JMicron Technology Corp. revealed that JMicron's Serial ATA (SATA) II PHY Technology has been developed and proven on UMC's 0.13?m HS (high speed) process.

The SATA 3.0/1.5Gbps physical layer (PHY) intellectual property (IP) core is designed to interface with SATA devices that comply with the SATA 2.0 specification, and builds upon the two companies' mass production success of JMicron's 0.18?m Serial ATA 1.5/3.0Gbps PHY IP at UMC.

According to UMC, the experience contributed to the first pass silicon success of the 0.13&micr;m SATA II IP core, with tape-out taking only 20 days for the joint R&D team to complete.

"UMC constantly enhances its SoC foundry solutions portfolio to provide the enabling resources that designers need to launch their SoC products in a timely fashion," said Ken Liou, director of the IP development and design support division at UMC.
