Spansion – AMD’s flash subsidiary – announced that volume production of 110nm floating gate technology in its Austin Fab 25 “MegaFab” now accounts for more than 50% of the facility’s total production. By midyear, Spansion expects planned output from the facility to be almost exclusively dedicated to 110nm technology.

“Fab 25’s near flawless ramp on the 110nm floating gate process is already generating yields well in excess of plans and close to those for mature technologies in full production,” said Randy Blair, vice president, Fab 25.

In March, Spansion announced it was ramping into volume production on 110nm floating gate products. This event is significant because it represented the industry’s first push beyond the 130nm barrier in commercial NOR Flash memory production.

“The combination of excellent yields and a faster than planned production ramp is accelerating our progress to double Spansion Flash memory capacity,” Blair added.

 “We set records last year with our excellent ramp of 130nm technology and then promptly broke those records this year with yet another exceptional execution of our ramp to 110nm technology. Fab 25 is truly a manufacturing powerhouse in Flash memory working in support of our customers’ business growth,” said Jim Doran, executive vice president worldwide technology development and manufacturing of Spansion.

Spansion’s second “MegaFab,” JV3 in Aizu-Wakamatsu is expected to follow the same path on 110nm technology in the second half of 2004.
