Process Technology

Faraday is a leading fabless ASIC supplier in the world. With a world-class foundry, UMC, as its strategic partner, Faraday has access to the most advanced process technologies, as well as cost effective solutions.

Faraday Process Technologies
Faraday works very closely with UMC to develop an extensive array of standard cell and I/O libraries for our mutual customers. Customers can conveniently access the most suitable library and process technology according to their requirements without cost constraints.

To serve the needs of fabless, IDM, and system companies globally, Faraday's comprehensive offering of logic and mixed signal processes spans from our most advanced 28nm, 40nm technology to 0.5um specialty processes. Customers can thus choose from different process nodes, voltage options, and mixed mode technologies to form a customizable platform base for SoC designs.

In 65/55nm, customers can choose the process device options that are optimized for their specific applications, such as Standard Performance (SP) or Low Leakage (LL, LP) transistors. The high performance characteristics of 65nm SP process enable designers to utilize the technology to power a broad range of consumer products.

40LP offers cost optimized, low power solution that supports by multiple foundry sourcing from UMC. It is ideal for cell phones, portable devices, WLAN and consumer electronics.

In 28nm, various types of IPs are available in both HPM (High Performance for Mobile) and HLP (High-Performance Low Power) processes. The process variety and Faraday’s complete IP offering help customers meet up the market requirements in wide ranges of applications, which feature low-power, high-density, high-speed, and high yield rate with Faraday’s mature methodology.
