Chipworks Launches Submicron Transistor Characterization Services

11/4/2005 - Chipworks Inc., (Chipworks) the industry leader in reverse engineering and analysis of semiconductor chips and systems, announced DC transistor characterization services for submicron transistors such as 90 nm and 65 nm CMOS technology nodes. Device manufacturers and designers now have access to the DC transistor characteristics (CMOS and bipolar) of commercially available, leading-edge integrated circuits.

Customers can use Chipworks structural and performance analyses to compare commercially available technologies against industry published data, or previous generations of technology. Chipworks products and services around this new capability will give customers timely and comprehensive, information that will help them to validate their own technology versus their competitors. Manufacturers in the fabless arena can use this information as part of their verification and qualification processes. Chipworks has seen rising customer demand in the Asia Pacific region for transistor characterization services.

"It is our experience that manufacturers often publish technical reports of their products that diverge markedly from what they are selling," says Dr. Kevin Gibb, Transistor Characterization Business Engineer at Chipworks. "Chipworks takes customers inside technology to help them more fully understand the competitive landscape, achieve faster design-to-market cycles, and aid in making objective business decisions."

Standard reports of CMOS technologies include measurements for two minimum gate length NMOS and PMOS transistors (along with the derived or measured measurement uncertainties).

Similar data is available for advanced bipolar devices
