SFN announces Bizen foundry network that halves IC purchasing price and slashes lead time
Search for the Next (SFN), developers of the Bizen wafer process, Zpolar transistor and Zpolar Tunnel Logic (ZTL), announced the WaferTrain network of foundries that is equipped with the Bizen wafer process and with capacity available now to build ICs that are equivalent to 180nm CMOS devices, yet are half the price and on shorter lead times.
SFN's ‘Infrastructure Time Machine’ for chip designs
Search for the Next (SFN) has made available a family of four ITMs (Infrastructure Time Machines) – which can be considered process nodes – that enable chip designers to produce ICs in older 180nm and even one-micron geometry fabs with the equivalent performance of CMOS devices made in current state-of-the-art plants.
Bizen transistor technology gets Capex investment
Bizen, the new transistor technology that is challenging CMOS, is set to benefit from investment in new process equipment which will expedite its development. Already, one wafer run is being produced every month by manufacturing ally, Semefab, and initial analysis is very positive for both power and digital circuits.
UK grant awarded to Bizen transistor technology
Nottingham-based start-up, Search For The Next (SFN) has announced that its Bizen transistor technology has received an award worth £1.7m which will drive forward the development of the enabling transistor process technology that will be the foundation for the success of British and worldwide industries in all sectors.
