Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has licensed the 90nm "common design enablement technology" utilized by IBM and Chartered, Chartered said.

As a result of this license agreement, Samsung, IBM and Chartered can make available common foundry design kits and tests chips as well as work with design enablement parties to provide future third-party solutions, initially for the 90nm CMOS logic processes, Chartered said.

Samsung is also working with IBM, Chartered and Infineon Technologies AG on the development of 65nm process technologies. "We firmly believe the common platform to be a truly attractive manufacturing model for the nano-age," said K.P. Suh, executive vice president of System LSI Technology Development at Samsung Electronics, in a statement issued by Chartered.
