Hua Hong Semiconductor to Make a Hit in the 8-bit MCU Market with Its 95nm eNVM Process Platform

HONG KONG, Aug 30, 2017 - (ACN Newswire) - Hua Hong Semiconductor Limited ("Hua Hong Semiconductor" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"; stock code: 1347.HK), a global leading pure-play 200mm foundry, today announced its latest 95nm Single Gate embedded Non-volatile Memory (95nm 5V SG eNVM) process platform for the 8-bit microcontroller unit (MCU) market. The 95nm 5V SG eNVM process platform has gained customers' favour with its low-power/cost benefits while keeping a guarantee on product performance and reliability. The platform has been ramped up successfully, and has delivered outstanding product performance.

In the era of connectivity, 8-bit MCUs are evolving constantly and shipments have been increasing. 8-bit MCUs are widely applied in fields such as industrial control, IoT, automotive, and consumer electronics. According to IHS' forecast, the 8-bit MCU market will continue its growth. By 2020, the global market size for 8-bit MCU will reach USD6.1 billion, and its demand will increase to nearly 17 billion units. Riding on this wave, Hua Hong Semiconductor launched its new 95nm 5V SG eNVM platform, a cost-effective process that helps improve customers' competiveness in the vast 8-bit MCU application market.

With optimized cell structure and IP design, the 95nm 5V SG eNVM process enables smaller die size, lower write power (50uA/MHz), and a low static device power (Ioff) at 0.5pA. CPU core clock frequency can reach up to 50MHz, well accommodating the demands of 8-bit MCU applications. The single IP design combining the high performance of Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EEPROM) and the small size of Flash can significantly reduce size and cost compared with the dual IP design. Moreover, a more competitive mask layer - with only 19 layers of mask for 3-layer metal, delivers obvious benefits in manufacturing cost. In terms of application, specifically for chips that have a larger analog circuit area, the 95nm 5V SG eNVM process from Hua Hong Semiconductor delivers great cost benefits, including guaranteed performance, high reliability, a data retention duration of more than 30 years, and the capability to endure more than 500,000 write/erase cycles.

"Hua Hong Semiconductor strives to maintain its global competitive edge in the field of eNVM technology, and has achieved excellent results in the smart card and MCU markets in recent years," said Dr. Kong Weiran, Executive Vice President of Hua Hong Semiconductor. "Featuring security, reliability, and cost-effectiveness, the 95nm 5V SG eNVM launched by Hua Hong Semiconductor is the preferred process to win in the 8-bit MCU market. The Company has the differenciated eFlash/eEEPROM process platforms required by a variety MCUs, and is able to integrate its embedded memory with CMOS RF and/or high-voltage (HV) LDMOS technologies to significantly expand the number of available MCU solutions. In response to the market dynamics, Hua Hong Semiconductor will continue its technical innovations to provide customers with MCU solutions featuring lower power, higher performance, reliability and security at an excellent performance-price ratio."
