Altera Corp. and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Ltd are collaborating to offer programmable devices leveraging TSMC's 55nm leading-edge Embedded Flash (EmbFlash) process technology. The companies said noted that programmable devices based on the 55nm EmbFlash technology of TSMC are ideal for a wide range of low-power, high-volume applications in different markets industrial and automotive.

Compared to prior generation embedded flash, TSMC's 55nm EmbFlash delivers faster computing, increases gate density 10x and shrinks flash and SRAM cell sizes by 70 per cent and 80 per cent respectively. Programmable devices from Altera based on TSMC's 55nm EmbFlash will permit developers of high-volume applications to build feature-rich, non-volatile systems.

"Our relationship with TSMC is built on a shared commitment to delivering the latest technologies and capabilities to customers," said Reda Razouk, vice president of process technology development at Altera. "Adding 55nm EmbFlash to our product portfolio extends Altera's tailored strategy in which Altera optimises its device families based on process technology, architecture and application-specific IP to meet system requirements."

"TSMC's continued investment in technologies such as 55nm EmbFlash broadens opportunities for customers like Altera," said Jason Chen, TSMC senior vice president, worldwide sales and marketing. "By aligning our business and technology goals, Altera can make its customers' products more competitive."
