Freescale, IBM to Collaborate on Future Semiconductor Technologies
Jan 2007
Austin, Texas-based Freescale Semiconductor and IBM of Armonk, N.Y., today announced that Freescale will join the IBM technology alliance for joint semiconductor research and development. The agreement includes CMOS and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technologies as well as advanced semiconductor research and design to allow transitioning to the 45-nm generation. Freescale is the first technology development partner in the IBM technology alliance to participate in both low-power and high-performance technology R&D, the companies said. Freescale said the alliance will help it strengthen its manufacturing strategy by giving the company access to the manufacturing capacity of IBM's Common Platform partners. The Common Platform provides its semiconductor fabrication partners with synchronized manufacturing processes for flexibility and lower development costs in multisource, high-volume manufacturing.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
