A leading global semiconductor foundry UMC was founded in 1980 as Taiwan’s first semiconductor company.
UMC – Foundry Technology – Taiwan
The high tech processes include 28nm poly-SiON and gate-last High-K/Metal Gate technology. Even Specialized technologies like Mixed signal/RFCMOS.
“Wafers are transported automatically in a Front Opening Universal Pod (FOUP) that has a capacity of 25 wafers. In addition, lot movement is executed using Automated Material Handling System (AMHS) for interbay moves..”
UMC’s Collaborative Advantage
“SoC silicon supply chain – Equipment, EDA tool, and IP vendors to work synergistically towards each customer’s …”

The Dedicated IC Foundry of TSMC is a foundation for logic IC innovations.It provides a complete range of services, including design and mask making services.
TSMC – Semiconductor Foundry
TSMC currently operates three 12-inch GIGAFAB fabrication facilities.
“TSMC has the broadest range of technologies and services in the Dedicated IC Foundry segment of the semiconductor manufacturing industry. The IC Industry Foundation strategy embodies an integrated approach that bundles process technology options and services.”
TSMC-Online is the first foundry delivery system to enable secure online business transactions and information transfer for creating product design, tape outs, and wafer tracking.
Through Silicon Via (TSV) technology to integrate multiple chips into a single device.
Higher density interconnects (lightens RC loading) resulting in enhanced performance (maybe RF too ?) and reduced power consumption in a smaller size.
