Memory from Infineon now in the 0.14µ process
Although the production of the memory chips has been running in the new 0.14µ process since September, mass production only started now, according to the company. According to Infineon, the 18% smaller structures compared to the previous 0.17µ process bring cost savings of 30%.
The 256MBit chips are the first chips approved by Intel for the i845 chipset in this capacity that met the stringent requirements for 2-2-2 timing at 133MHz. The chips, which are manufactured using the space-saving and therefore cost-reducing trench technology that is unique to Infineon, are manufactured in the Dresden plant on silicon wafers with a diameter of 200mm
