This 0.35-micron CMOS technology offers four metal layers, digital standard cells, an anti-reflective coating and high-efficiency photodiodes, and bulk micromachining.

CMC's multi-project wafer service delivers this technology from austriamicrosystems through partnership with Circuits Multi Projets (CMP) in France, offering three processes: Basic, Opto (see details below) and High-Voltage. The technology is suitable for:

  • Embedded photodiodes, high-density CMOS imaging and optoelectronic detection
  • High-voltage operation (maximum 20V gate, 50V operating voltage)
  • Mixed-signal designs
  • High-speed digital circuits
  • For the Basic and Opto processes, bulk micromachining of MEMS structures

Potential applications include:

  • Biomedical imaging
  • Automotive and environmental sensors

Opto Process (C35B4O1) Details:

  • Technology Features:
    • 4 metal and 2 poly layers (similar to basic option)
    • igh-efficiency photodiode and anti-reflective coating for imaging and optoelectronic detection applications
  • Supply Voltage: 3.3/5V
  • Bulk-micromachining option, allowing monolithic implementation of MEMS and microelectronics
