Cypress Semiconductor Corp. is expanding manufacturing capacity for its TrueTouch touchscreen controllers.

Cypress's Fab 4 and Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Cypress's primary foundry partner, will triple 2011 capacity for the S8 manufacturing process versus 2010 levels. The expansions are on schedule, with the first additional capacity expected to come on-line in Q1 2011, and full completion expected in Q3 2011.

Aside from the TrueTouch products, Cypress also uses the S8 process to make its PSoC 3, PSoC 5, CapSense and NVSRAM products. The process is based on 0.13micron SONOS (silicon oxide nitride oxide silicon) embedded nonvolatile memory technology. SONOS is compatible with standard CMOS technologies and offers high endurance, low power, and radiation hardness. SONOS also provides a more robust, manufacturable and cost-effective solution compared to other embedded nonvolatile memory technologies.
