South Korean foundry Dongbu HiTek will begin volume production of low-power 8Mbyte/3V SRAM devices for EMLSI, a provider of SRAM solutions targeting mobile handset applications.

In shifting the wafer processing node for EMLSI's 8Mbyte/3V devices from 0.18- to 0.15?, Dongbu expects the more compact memory chips to drive higher foundry profit margins as they also enable EMLSI to strengthen its position in the mobile handset market. The new 8Mbyte/3V SRAM devices are expected to begin rolling off Dongbu's CMOS wafer processing line next month.

According to Jae Song, EVP for Dongbu, the successful transition of EMLSI's 8Mbyte/3V SRAM solution to the 0.15? node reflects a win-win fabless/foundry relationship that will continue to flourish. "We continue to collaborate closely with EMLSI with plans to shift its other popular SRAM solutions, notably 2Mbyte/3V and 4Mbyte/5V devices, to the finer 0.15? processing node in the near future."

He added that the growing demand for the low-power SRAM devices developed by EMLSI is being driven by the popularity of exciting new mobile and consumer electronic products coming to market.
