First DDC Transistor-Based Chip Enters Volume Production

SuVolta, Inc. and Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited today announced volume production of the first Deeply Depleted Channel (DDC) transistor-based chip, MB86S22AA Milbeaut image processor integrated circuit (IC). Manufactured on “CS250S” technology, which combines Fujitsu Semiconductor’s 55nm process with DDC technology, the IC has 30 percent lower power consumption and roughly twice the processing performance compared to the existing products, despite the new product having  considerably more circuits with enhanced processing performance. MB86S22AA represents the culmination of a successful joint development program between the companies. Together, the companies are advancing the capabilities of ultra-low-power, high-performance products.
