Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. (SMIC) has developed a 38nm NAND Flash process technology that the company said makes it the only foundry to manufacture NAND products for its customers. This process platform has been independently created in its entirety by SMIC. With this offering, the company targets the growing demand in specialty memory fabless customers with high-quality low-density NAND Flash products.

NAND Flash is the fastest growing non-volatile memory (NVM) product in recent years. The 38nm NAND Flash technology targets diversified high volume specialty applications such as embedded products, mobile computing, TV and STB. Customers are also leveraging this technology to address SPI NAND market as well as the increasing usage of IoT related products. SMIC's launch of 38nm NAND Flash technology helps customers to meet the growing demands of this market both in China and globally.

"SMIC has developed a series of specialty NOR flash platform from 130nm down to 65nm in the past. Through the dedicated and methodical effort of SMIC's R&D team, we have achieved an important diversification in offering 38nm NAND. This will serve as a solid foundation for us to move forward on the development of more advanced nodes such as 2x/1xnm and 3D NAND Flash process technology. SMIC is committed to drive advanced NAND Flash for fabless customers that meet high quality standards," said Shiuh-Wuu Lee, EVP of technology development of SMIC.

"This important milestone has great strategic significance not only to SMIC, but also to our specialty memory customers and partners. For our customers, SMIC solidifies the commitment and capabilities on advanced non-volatile memory technology development. In addition, it demonstrates SMIC's capability to establish a leading position in selective market segments," said Tzu-Yin Chiu, CEO and executive director of SMIC.
