17:21 EDTSMISemiconductor Manufacturing, Qualcomm form joint venture to focus on 14nm tech
Earlier on Tuesday, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm Global Trading -- an affiliate of Qualcomm (QCOM) -- announced the formation of SMIC Advanced Technology Research & Development, an equity joint venture company. The joint venture company will focus on R&D towards next generation CMOS logic technology and an advanced integrated circuit development R&D platform. SMIC Advanced Technology R&D will be majority owned by SMIC, while Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm will be minority shareholders. "By enabling fabless semiconductor companies to join the development process as shareholders, the product development cycle can be shortened and the advanced process node tape out time can be accelerated," said the statement. In the first phase, the joint venture will develop 14 nanometer CMOS technology for mass production, which will be based on imec's expertise. The project will be done at SMIC's production line. SMIC will have the rights to license the required intellectual property rights on the mass production technologies of advanced nodes developed by the joint venture company.
