Micrel Inc. has implemented a sub-micron 0.35 technology processing in its San Jose California facility. With the purchase of specialized equipment, Micrel's fab can now run more advanced sub-micron 0.35 CMOS processes. The new tool enables the fab to run sub-micron 0.35 technology in full production mode. The announcement takes the fab technology from 0.5 to sub-micron 0.35 capability.

Guy Gandenberger, VP of wafer fab and foundry operations said that the equipment will add a much needed capacity for its sub-micron 0.5 capability to insure that they continue to meet world class standards.

Micrel's San Jose California-based wafer fabrication facility has been certified to ISO14001:1996, the International Environmental Management System Standard. The company continues to focus on continuously improving its quality, safety and environmental practices and, to that end, was recently able to significantly reduce water and energy consumption, saving significant operating funds while continuing to preserve the environment.

To ensure compliance with the European directive on the restriction of use of hazardous substances (ROHS) and other similar regulations, a majority of Micrel products may now be ordered in lead-free versions.
