TSMC Ships 600,000 0.25-Micron Automotive-Qualified Embedded Flash Wafers

HSINCHU, Taiwan, R.O.C., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, Ltd. (TWSE: 2330, NYSE: TSM) today announced that it has shipped nearly 600,000 8-inch 0.25-micron AEC-Q100 grade 1 qualified embedded flash (EmbFlash) wafers targeted at a wide variety of automotive applications, accounting for over 720 million microcontrollers (MCUs). Some customers have achieved less-than 0.1 parts per million field failure rate in 2009.  

The less than 0.1 ppm field failure rate is considered exceptional for embedded flash devices, given the limited number of endurance cycles and data retention tests that can be performed during the manufacturing screening process.  TSMC credits a … Read More → "TSMC Ships 600,000 0.25-Micron Automotive-Qualified Embedded Flash Wafers"
