United Microelectronics Corp. (UMC) has taped out what it says is the foundry industry's first customer product using 55nm small display driver IC (SDDI) process technology. UMC also declared that it is now the first foundry to offer a 55nm version of the process to enable Full-HD resolutions for smartphones.

Yau Kae Sheu, senior director of UMC's 12-inch Specialty Technology Development division, said, "This world-leading 55nm SDDI process nicely complements our comprehensive display driver technology portfolio. With our volume production 0.13um and our recently introduced new generation 80nm SDDI technologies, customers now have the flexibility to design into a full range of smartphone resolutions depending on their application, including WVGA, qHD, HD720/WXGA, and now Full-HD, fully covering smartphone display requirements from 3.5in to larger than 5in."

The 55nm SDDI process features an ultra-small SRAM size (0.4um2) and provides an ideal balance of power consumption, performance and chip size for integration into high-end Full-HD smartphones that demand low power and a slim profile. The 55nm SDDI customer products will be manufactured using advanced 300mm wafer technology, with fast manufacturing cycle to fit customer time-to-market needs, added the firm.
