Sitronics plans Russian 45-nm wafer fab, says report
September 25, 2007 //
JSC Sitronics, a Russian provider of telecommunications and consumer equipment, has said it has started a project to develop chip manufacturing at the 65-nm to 45-nm nodes on 300-mm diameter wafers, according to a CNews report. Sitronics is the owner of chip maker JSC Mikron (Zelenograd, Russia).
LONDON JSC Sitronics, a Russian provider of telecommunications and consumer equipment, has said it has started a project to develop chip manufacturing at the 65-nm to 45-nm nodes on 300-mm diameter wafers, according to a CNews report. Sitronics is the owner of chip maker JSC Mikron (Zelenograd, Russia).
The 45/300 project was approved recently by the Investment Committee at the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade and recommended to be submitted to the government, according to the report. The report estimated that Sitronic would have to spend more than 58 billion rubles (about $2.3 billion) on building a production facility.
The project was discussed at an investment forum ÔSochi-2007' and Sitronics plans to start construction of a 300-mm wafer fab in January 2008, the report said. Chip production would then begin in October 2009. Sitronics proposed that the wafer fab should belong to a joint venture owned 51 percent by Sitronics and 49 percent by the Russian government, the report said.
However, there was no discussion of how the process technology would be sourced.
Meanwhile Mikron is pushing ahead with its cooperation with STMicroelectronics NV and is in the process of qualifying a 180-nm CMOS process. This is due to be done by the end of 2007 with mass production beginning in 2008.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
