Samsung is foundry for ST’s 32 and 28nm SoCs

Samsung Electronics is to manufacture products for STMicroelectronics using its 32 and 28nm High K Metal Gate (HKMG) process technology. According to the companies, the relationship has already seen 'a dozen' tape outs of advanced SoCs for mobile, consumer and network applications.

Kwang-Hyun Kim, executive vice president of Samsung's foundry business, said: "A foundry relationship with STMictroelectronics demonstrates our commitment to advanced process technology and our 32/28nm HKMG process technology leadership. We have aggressively ramped 32/28nm capacity and will continue to deliver the most advanced process solutions to our customers."
Jean-Marc Chery, ST's chief technology officer, added: "ST and Samsung have worked together on advanced process-technology development through the International Semiconductor Development Alliance (ISDA) and that experience has provided significant insight into our ability to work together to meet our objectives and thus provide unique service to our customers in demanding and fast moving markets."
