Royal Philips Electronics said yesterday that it has ramped three key 90-nm CMOS products into volume production at the Crolles2 Alliance wafer fab in Crolles, France. The three Philips products, one of which is already shipping at more than 1 million pieces per month, are baseband chips. The company plans to migrate volume production to TSMC as part of the outsourcing strategy and technology alignment program in place when Crolles2 was started.

In addition to the volume production of the three digital baseband chips, several dedicated test-chips and around 15 new-product tape outs have been made, according to the company.

Philips is working on the implementation of Flash/EEPROM non-volatile memory in 90 nm as well as RFCMOS technologies to be fabricated at Crolles2.
