Freescale Semiconductor plans to enter into 65nm IC prototyping in November of this year. Work will be carried out at the Crolles2 joint development facility with STM and Philips in Crolles, France. "We have addressed many of the industry's widely reported challenges with 90-nm and are applying our expertise to the next generations of technology," said Freescale's Chief Technology Officer Dr. Claudine Simson. "Our achievements at 90-nm over the past year set the stage for successful 65-nm prototyping, which we will begin in November."

Freescale started 90nm production on 300mm wafers at the same facility in October 2004 and now claims to have taped out 12 new products from the facility that where "right-the-first-time."
